HSG is pleased to announce a call for proposals to host the Eighth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in 2024 (HSR2024).
As a global membership society of individuals and organizations working on health policy and systems research (HPSR) issues, HSG’s mission is to connect and engage researchers, policymakers, healthcare managers, educators, civil society, the media, and donors from around the world to advance the field of HPSR and create opportunities for unleashing their collective capacity for generating, sharing and applying knowledge necessary for health systems strengthening.
The biennial Global Symposia of Health Systems Research serves as one of HSG’s signature activities. It is currently the only international gathering that serves the needs of the HPSR community. Previous global symposia have been held in Montreux 2010, Switzerland (Europe), Beijing 2012, China (Western Pacific), Cape Town 2014, South Africa (Africa), Vancouver 2016, Canada (Americas), Liverpool 2018, UK (Europe), Dubai 2020 (Middle East) and Bogota 2022 (South America). In light of the global pandemic, HSR2020 was held as an entirely virtual event; and HSR2022 is being planned as a hybrid event, with both in-person and virtual participation.
The prospective host(s) of the Eighth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research is expected to be an academic institution, an NGO, a research institution or a consortium of institutions with a strong track record in the field of HPSR and the ability to convene and actively engage regional, national/sub-national (preferably regional) health policymakers, academia, students, civil society and media in the event. Applications from consortia are strongly encouraged to broaden national/regional ownership of the event and, where necessary, to enhance the capacity of the prime applicant.
