FHS films to be shown at a major global conference

News

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.

FHS films to be shown at a major global conference

Future Health Systems

Two films made by Future Health Systems will be shown at the Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Vancouver, Canada, from 14th to 18th November 2016. The films will be shown as part of the Global Symposium's multimedia strand.

How healthly are the children of the Indian Sundarbans?
This film by FHS India partner, the Indian Institute of Health Management and Research (IIHMR), highlights how the resilience of the poor communities of the Indian Sundarbans is challenged on a daily basis by the ‘wicked’ problem of climatic shocks and poverty, and exacerbated by a weak health system. No one is closer to this knife edge than the children and women of the Indian Sundarbans.

Winds of change

A film by Makerere University School of Public Health, FHS' partner in Uganda, captures the views and lessons learnt through the eyes of those implementing and participating in a four year FHS project in collaboration with Ministry of Health in three districts in Eastern Uganda (Kamuli, Pallisa and Kibuku) aimed at improving access for mothers to give birth at health facilities by helping them save for the costs to travel to facilities; sensitising and improving awareness of the need for birth preparedness, knowledge of danger signs and utilising health facility services; and training and supporting local health workers.
