Reports and resources
This Report gives insights into the development and evolution of HPSR in various LMICs and advocates for far greater investments in HPSR, particularly at country-level. The Report reflects the complex and varied nature of HPSR across a diversity of countries, highlighting the different ways that HPSR is organized around the world.
Learning – at individual, team, organization and cross-organization levels – is fundamental to health systems strengthening and the achievement of health goals. This report advances a comprehensive understanding of what is meant by – and how to create – learning health systems. It outlines the benefits of learning health systems and the actions needed to build such systems.
Stories of change
Policy-makers bear the responsibility of making a wide range of decisions on matters that could be life or death. This story of change chronicles how two research teams – in Georgia and India – worked with policy-makers to provide rapid evidence in the face of the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The second in our series of stories of changefocuses on Mozambique in the aftermath of Cyclone Idai. It explains how an innovative embedded research approach has improved data collection, empowered local health workers and managers and helped build resilience to respond to health emergencies.
After outlining a new five-year strategic plan in 2021, the Alliance has been working this year to broaden its horizons beyond traditional health systems to consider the wider determinants of health. To help track our progress on advancing knowledge, catalysing change and empowering leaders, we have developed a set of key performance indicators.
This year is the first year of the Alliance’s new five-year strategic plan. This annual report showcases both how we continue to invest in actionable research for stronger health systems, but also how we are working toward resilient and responsive health systems that are able to respond to emergencies and, more broadly, how to foster healthier populations.
In 2019, the Alliance supported 16 ongoing projects, representing 111 grants across 42 countries. Find out more about these projects, as well as long-term investments that the Alliance has made to support greater capacity for health policy and systems research in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Nigeria.
Organized around our over-arching objectives, our 2018 Annual Report profiles how we bring people together, how we empower leaders, how we generate knowledge and how we influence policy around the world. For the first time we also take a look back at recent examples of policy change and expand on how our grants have informed longer-term processes.
