Our Work and Expertise


CHRE has delivered on a range of end-to-end healthcare projects, including problem identification, stakeholder mapping, data collection and analysis, and recommending innovative and practical solutions.

Our range of research projects with partners and collaborators across the world have a common theme: using robust methods to come to practical scalable solutions. e.g. our multi-stage research in the UK has systematically identified the bottlenecks in achieving a Smoke-free UK, and is enabling us to propose targeted interventions that can make a difference on the ground.

An example of our research can be found here.

At CHRE, we believe that innovative solutions- from the fields of Behavioural Economics to Artificial Intelligence, have a key role to play in enhancing the likelihood of success in preventing cancers.

It is well established that the current available smoking cessation tools and services on the market achieve sub-optimal success rates. Our deep global insights into consumers and their healthcare influencers’ behaviours allow us to think outside the box when it comes to proposing interventions. These innovations straddle diverse areas such as edge computing to nicotine replacement product development.

Covid-19 has surely been challenging for all, and though we have now hopefully crossed the peak, we will be seeing its implications for many months to come. Not just due to the physical illness itself, but also due to its effects on society’s mental health and resultant increased addictions.

Healthcare professionals will continue to consult significant proportion of patients remotely for many more months or years to come. We are aware how busy healthcare professionals are and we also know that it is important to support smokers stay away from cigarettes for better longer term health outcomes.
