"At the Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (November 14–18, 2016, Vancouver, Canada) we will confront questions of how health systems can absorb shocks, respond to emerging needs and take advantage of new opportunities in the face of emerging challenges. We will also collectively engage and interrogate opportunities and modalities of innovation, transformation and resilience in health systems in all their diverse realities."

This year we are involved in a range of panels and poster presentations. If you want to learn more about our work on quality improvement in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kenya, Malawi, and Mozambique come along and meet the team. You can also find us in the market place.
