2021/2022 Latin America and Caribbean Symposium Pre-Conferences

In advance of the Seventh Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR2022) to be held in Bogota, Colombia between 31 October and 4 November 2022, the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Regional Network has organized six Symposium pre-conferences across the region, in collaboration with local and regional partners.

These pre-conferences aim to explore and debate the themes of HSR2022, identify and support submissions to its scientific program, and more broadly to enhance the debate on the design and implementation of policies for more equitable and effective health systems and services, providing a perspective of the LAC region.
