Stratègic Plan 2017-2020



The Mission of the Foundation University Institute for Primary Health Care Research Jordi Gol i Gurina (IDIAPJGol) is to promote, develop and manage community and primary health care research, to train investigators to generate and disseminate knowledge and to translate the research results to society to improve human health.


The Vision of the IDIAPJGol is to be nationally and internationally recognized as a leader in health promotion and primary care research by means of involving the public and health professionals and by influencing health policies.


The values that we share, stand up and promote are trust, equity, responsability, excellence, cooperation, collaboration and innovation.

Trust: Trust implies confidentiality, the good use of the data to which we have access as investigators.

Equity: Equity is the fair and adequate treatment that takes into account the circumstances and values of every individual without discrimination. This fair and adequate treatment must also prevail in the relationship with workers, providers and other stakeholders.

Responsability: Responsibility is the capacity to own your own decisions and acts, to assume their consequences and to inform the people involved. Responsibility requires transparency and truthfulness about what we say and do (actions), why we do it (values) and its consequences, to ensure good practice in research, teaching and management.

Excellence: Excellence is the continuing professional development to work to the best of our ability, to lead improvement initiatives and to be aware of the changes around us. Excellence requires a set of knowledge, skills and attitudes adequate for the activities we want to carry out.

Cooperation: Cooperation is the attitude of participation and involvement in teamwork, from our own individuality and with a critical approach. We develop our individual work abilities through complementarity and coordination of labour.

Collaboration: Working alongside and in conditions of equality with other public and private organizations involved in research and provision of health services.

Innovation: Capacity to introduce changes to improve assistance and care taking into account feasibility, risks and benefits.
