Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR 2016)
Theme: Resilient and responsive health systems for a changing world.
Health Systems Global organizes a symposium every two years to bring together its members with the full range of players involved in health systems and policy research.
At HSR2016 in Vancouver, participants will collectively engage and interrogate opportunities and modalities of transformation and resilience in health systems – in all their diverse realities – and as yet unforeseen challenges and opportunities that health systems may encounter. They will seek to understand these diverse settings, and develop a more integrated understanding of the multiple ‘real worlds’ health systems are embedded within. HSR2016 will explore ways of preserving public value and public goods in the face of systemic changes that populations, governments and health systems as a whole have to confront, both today and in the future.
Whether you work on the role of the state or private sector, community participation, climate change, interdisciplinary modelling, intellectual property or maternal and child health, you're invited to share how your work can inform and learn from others, build the field, and transform health systems for the future, now.
