The Health Systems Global’s Strategic Plan (2022-2026) aligns with the mission and values of our Society and aims to position HSG at the forefront of HPSR within the ever-changing landscape of global health.  The development process was inclusive, participatory, and consultative with broad engagement across HSG membership, partners, and other relevant constituencies.

The Strategic Plan is intended to highlight the following priorities that will guide the society’s decision-making during the period:

  • Promote the field of HPSR, strengthening intersectoral and interdisciplinary approaches and collaborations
  • Reinforce and sustain HSG’s role in facilitating the production and dissemination of HPSR, bridging the gap between researchers and practitioners.
