About HSR2024

Health Systems Global (HSG) organizes a symposium every two years to bring together its members with the full range of players involved in health systems and policy research and practice. There is currently no other international gathering that serves the needs of this community.

Each symposium is designed to:

  • Share new state-of-the-art evidence
  • Review the progress and challenges towards implementation of the global agenda of priority research
  • Identify and discuss the approaches to strengthen the scientific rigor of health systems research including concepts, frameworks, measures and methods
  • Facilitate greater research collaboration and learning communities across disciplines, sectors, initiatives and countries.

Participants include researchers, policymakers, funders, implementers, civil society and other stakeholders from relevant national and regional agencies, associations and professional organizations.

The program includes plenary addresses from world experts, concurrent sessions made up from abstracts and other proposals, poster presentations, a marketplace and many other networking opportunities. Details on the developing program, including speakers and pre- and post-Symposium satellite sessions, are regularly communicated on the website and via social media.
