Resilient and responsive health systems for a changing world

Like the societies of which they are a part, health systems face constant new challenges. They must maintain a focus on health improvement even as they absorb unexpected shocks, respond to emerging needs and take advantage  of new opportunities. At HSR2016 we will push the boundaries of health systems research in addressing  the challenges of our changing world. Read the full theme here.

Programme Overview

There will be over one hundred 90-minute concurrent sessions planned within the programme. Approximately half of these concurrent sessions will be allocated to ‘organized sessions’ and the other half will be based on ‘individual abstracts’. Abstracts for organized sessions and individual presentations were open from October 2015 until January and March, 2016. These sessions are to be linked to the following sub-themes:

  • Enhancing health system resilience: absorbing shocks and sustaining gains in every setting
  • Equity, rights, gender and ethics: responsiveness through values-based health systems
  • Engaging power and politics in promoting health and public value
  • Implementing improvement and innovation in health services and systems
  • New partnerships and collaborations for health system research and development
  • Future reciprocal learning and evaluation approaches for health system development

Abstracts in a given sub-theme may address any of
the symposium’s traditional ‘field-building’ dimensions

  • Cutting-edge research
  • Innovative research approaches and measures
  • Novel strategies for developing capacity
  • Learning communities and knowledge translation
  • Innovative practice in health systems development
