Building Health Policy and Systems Research Capacity

Future Health Systems

BY KATE HAWKINS, INSTITUTE OF DEVELOPMENT STUDIES

On Monday conference participants at the Global Symposium gathered to explore how we can work together to understand and increase capacity for undertaking and utilising Health Policy and Systems Research. This is a priority area if we are serious about improving systems and service delivery for the people who need it the most.

You can download the main messages from the satellite below but in short we need to:

  • Forcefully make the argument that health policy and systems research is important

  • Work in multi-stakeholder partnerships to support country-driven research agendas, evaluate the evidence and get this work into policy and practice

  • Push governments and other funders to invest in this area, particularly in national research organisations over the longer term

  • Make sure that health policy and systems research is harmonized and aligned with the national agenda

  • Encourage further exploration of methodologies for this work

  • Support and nurture young researchers

  • Develop cross-country lesson learning and collaboration
