Future Health Systems is a research consortium working to improve access, affordability and quality of health services for the poor. We are a partnership of leading research institutes from across the globe working in a variety of contexts: in low-income countries (Bangladesh, Uganda), middle-income countries (China, India) and fragile states (Afghanistan) to build resilient health systems for the future. After a successful first five-year phase from 2006-2011 (see our success stories), we are entering a new six-year phase of research, funded mainly by UK aid.

Considering 'complex adaptive systems'

Future Health Systems

In the second phase of Future Health Systems, Professor David Peters at JHSPH has begun collaborating on a stream of work on ‘complex adaptive systems’. Complex adaptive systems (CAS) are described as such because, in addition to being comprised of many interacting components and agents, they have the capability to self-organize, adapt or learn from experience – what are sometimes known as emergent properties. Most social, biological and economic systems can be considered CAS, including health systems.

Today FHS have launched its complex adaptive systems theme page with a wide range of products that begin to explain our approach to CAS and why we think it’s such an important topic to consider.
