We are pleased to announce that the HSR2018 evaluation report is now available online!
The Fifth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR2018) in Liverpool, UK (October 2018), brought together 2247 actors involved in health systems and policy research and practice from more than 125 countries. The main purpose of this evaluation was to assess to what extent the HSR2018 symposium contributed to achieving the key objectives of Health Systems Global (HSG) that include:
- Assure inclusiveness and connect diverse stakeholders (researchers, policy makers,
program managers, advocates, community organizations, media representatives)
from different geographic regions, country income groups and language backgrounds
- Facilitate equitable knowledge acquisition and dissemination around health policy
and systems research
- Disseminate HSR methods including methods for knowledge translation
- Support capacity-building for the conduct, translation and utilization of health policy
and systems research.
The research conducted for the evaluation included an online survey (1079 – 48%
response rate), semi-structured interviews (18 delegates), onsite observation and an
analysis of secondary data.
