Developing baseline data is a first step for understanding the situation of the different countries regarding health research systems and serves as a basis for comparison. Mapping of National Health Research Systems (NHRS) is also a necessary first step to assess resources, capabilities, and talents in each country and allows for pertinent gaps to be identified and subsequently addressed while also enabling the identification of potential networks and south-to-south linkages in promoting research for health.
