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.

Future Health Systems Young Researcher Awards

Future Health Systems

Future Health Systems (FHS) offers a number of small grants ($7,000 to $10,000) for research projects submitted by junior staff or postgraduate students from FHS or Africa Hub partner institutions.

The awards aim to:

  • Support the development and implementation of innovative new research proposals that address research questions closely related to the themes of FHS;
  • Support the career development of particularly promising young faculty and post-graduate students across FHS partners;
  • Strengthen links between FHS partners;
  • Act as seed money stimulating further grant applications and the development of larger programmes of work.

In 2014, four young researchers were selected for these awards.


Mrs. Jackline Chepchirchir Sitinei is an Assistant Lecturer in the Health Policy and Management Department at Moi University’s School of Public Health in Kenya, as well as a Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa PhD Fellow.  Her research project, based in Uasin Gishu County, Kenya, will explore the determinants of community participation in the governance of health facilities, including community perceptions of participation and the role of power dynamics.


Mr. Francis Nzakimuena Zola is Academic Assistant in the Department of Management at University of Kinshasa’s School of Public Health in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  His research project will draw from local experience with prepaid phone services in Kinshasa, in order to explore the feasibility of a prepaid scheme for community financing of health care services.


Mr. Mohammed Shahnawaz is a Research Fellow at Indian Institute of Health Management Research in Jaipur, India.  He will assess whether a “near field communication” chip-based mobile phone application for the remote, real-time monitoring of immunisation progress contributes to immunisation adherence, coverage, and resource conservation in rural Udaipur, Rajastan.  This new technology comes in the form of a pendant, worn by children, and is designed to record vaccinations visually for mothers and electronically for health care providers.


Mrs. Liu Tianyang is a Research Associate at the China National Health Development Research Center, in Beijing, China. Through this award, she will conduct a qualitative evaluation of the E-Health Disease Management System Model for elderly community residents, in cooperation with Sino Health Care, an NGO currently launching the “Care for the Elderly” project in Harbin and Beijing, China.

Buzzfeed: A new home for research?

Future Health Systems

When the Policy Influence and Research Uptake team for FHS first outlined its strategy, it enumerated a number of key principles that underpinned our work. One of them was 'being there'. 

On the web, this has also meant finding new ways of engaging users with our content. At the beginning of the consortium, that meant building up our social media presence on TwitterFacebook, and GooglePlus -- just to name a few. It also meant adding our referenced work to relevant Wikipedia articles, for example maternal health in Uganda.

But, as the online world continues to change, so must we. One of the more popular websites these days is Buzzfeed. And in the interest of experimentation, we've been repurposing some of our content for that site.
