Cape Town Statement

The Third Global Symposium on Health Systems Research on the science and practice of people-centred health systems ended this afternoon with a call to move forward in the spirit of discussions over the past week.

Sara Bennett, the new chair of Health Systems Global, read the Cape Town Statement.

She announced that the next Symposium would take place in Vancouver, Canada, in 2016, then officially closed the Symposium with these words:

“Let us try to capture some of the energy, wisdom and community support that we have extended to each other during this meeting and, when you return home, spread it around a little, sprinkle it in the communities where you work and let’s seek together truly to make health systems more people centred.”
