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.

The one-day symposium wil take place before the iHEA World Congress in Sydney, Australia on 6 July 2013.

  2. Good, bad, or indistinguishable: Quality of care in the private sector
  3. Building institutions for influencing private sector performance

  5. The evolution of the global health marketplace: Implications for health systems
  6. Using metrics to understand the role of the private health sector as part of the health system
  7. Juxtaposing private health care in low-income and high-income countries

Limited scholarships will be made available from selected abstracts whose authors are from a low- or middle-income country and who can demonstrate need. Find out more on the Private Sector in Health website.

Members of the Future Health Systems consortium, David Bishai and Gerry Bloom, have taken up the stewardship of this year's symposium. Historically, the leadership has rotated among scientific committee members. To receive updates about the Symposium, register on their website.
