  • Published in collaboration with the World Health Organization
  • International approach that specifically includes low-middle income countries
  • Considers organisation and use of health research

Health Research Policy and Systems covers all aspects of the organisation and use of health research. These include agenda setting, building health research capacity, and how research as a whole benefits decision makers, practitioners in health and related fields, and society at large.

Topics addressed include: the role of evidence-based health policy and health research systems in ensuring the efficient use and application of knowledge to improve health and health equity; facilitation of communication between people involved in different areas of research, managers and administrators in charge of research entities, policy makers, innovators, and those charged with funding research. The effects of national and international research systems on research capacity in low-middle income countries is a key issue.
