Re-imagining health systems for better health and social justice
WHEN: 8-12 NOVEMBER 2020
The Sixth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research will bring together over 2,000 policy-makers, practitioners and researchers from more than 100 countries to explore how we can build health systems which improve people's health and are socially just.
By participating in HSR2020, you will be able to share your unique point of view and innovative ideas on strengthening health systems and engage in dialogue with a diverse community, ranging from high-level policy-makers, researchers and donors to practitioners and advocates on the ground.
THEME - Re-imagining health systems for better health and social justice
Ten years on from the First Global Symposium on Health Systems Research, health systems around the world are still far from achieving the Sustainable Development Goal to “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”.
They remain predominantly sick care systems - disconnected from the broader upstream forces influencing health. A fundamental paradigm shift is needed if health systems are to be equipped to address complex and interconnected health and development challenges.
The Sixth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR2020) will seek to break old silos and re-orient health systems to address public health and engage the political, social, and environmental forces that perpetuate health inequities and social injustices. It will explore how technological, data and social innovations can address these challenges, and how health systems research can support essential transformations in health systems.
