Future Health Systems was recently profiled in Johns Hopkins School of Public Health's quarterly newsletter, The Globe. The article provides a good overview of the program, its partners and its future directions. A short excerpt can be found below, followed by a link to the full article.
The Department’s Health Systems faculty recently won a second 6-year award to lead the Future Health Systems (FHS) consortium. During this second phase, researchers from four continents will continue investigating how to deliver effective primary health care services to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged populations around the world. Building on the Department’s long tradition of community-based healthcare, FHS is designed around the mandate of locally driven research. Not only do local experts lead research activities, local communities are also a part of the research design and implementation processes. As with the first 5 years of Future Health Systems, this innovative approach will help local communities implement sustainable programs while producing globally relevant research findings.
