The 8th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research 2024 invites applicants to submit abstracts for consideration. The HSR2024 main theme is ‘Building Just and Sustainable Health Systems Centring People and Protecting the Planet’.
Across all these themes, they welcome a range of types of sessions. The Symposium also seeks to build the field of health systems research, in addition to addressing important thematic areas. Sessions that allow examining a common set of problems, develop/advance a body of theory and knowledge, and/or consider common practices are therefore welcome. Overall, the range of abstracts sought includes the following field-building dimensions:
Health Systems Global (HSG) is a diverse, global membership organization of researchers, decision-makers and implementers who are dedicated to promoting health policy and systems research (HPSR) and knowledge generation.
HSG has more than 2,000 members in over 125 countries. Members are encouraged to join and contribute to their membership networks, including Thematic Working Groups (TWGs) and Regional Networks.
To bring together members and the full range of players involved in HPSR, HSG organizes a Global Symposium on Health Systems Research every two years.
The First Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR2010) was held in Montreux, Switzerland, in November 2010. This symposium highlighted the lack of any organization for, or network, of health systems researchers, decision-makers and implementers. As a result, consensus was reached on the need to create an international society for health systems research, knowledge, innovation and action.
HSG was legally founded on 26 October 2012 with an interim Secretariat in Copenhagen, Denmark, and was launched at the Second Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR2012), which took place in Beijing, China in November 2012.
In 2021, the HSG Secretariat moved to the Canadian Association for Global Health, based in Ottawa, Canada.
