Latin America pre-HSR2022 meetings

HSG to co-host six pre-conference meetings in Latin America & the Caribbean ahead HSR2022

In advance of the Seventh Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR2022), 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.


If you are an HSG member based in the LAC region, or are not yet member, but are interested and engaged health policy and systems research, policy and practice, you are invited to participate in one of the meetings taking place in nine different countries in the region between November 2021 and xx 2022.
