Health Systems Performance in the Political Agenda: Sharing lessons for current and future global challenges.

The Seventh Global Symposium on Health Systems Research will host a full and diverse hybrid program from October 31 – November 4, 2022 in Bogota, Colombia.

Health systems face significant challenges all around the world and the experience of the COVID-19 pandemic reveals just how valuable strong health systems are to society. It has also been laying bare weaknesses in service provision; intersectoral action; information systems; and governance, including community engagement in low-, middle- and high-income settings alike. What is clear, now more than ever, is that trust and solidarity are the central and most important values from which to build back stronger, more resilient health systems.

The 7th Global Symposium must face the challenge of optimally sharing – and learning from – the experiences of the last two years.

HSR2022 will be a catalytic forum through which to share knowledge and experiences, raise awareness and advocate for change, build capacity, and develop partnerships for action.

The Global Symposium on Health Systems Research is organized every two years by Health Systems Global to bring together the full range of players involved in health systems and policy research and practice. 


Whether you are involved in policy, practice, research, advocacy, or education; whether you are concerned about health systems, humanitarian health, social protection, environmental sustainability, ethics, political economy, social science or media, we invite you to join us to learn, share, and inform the transformation to stronger, more resilient health systems.
