Health Systems Global Communications

IDS is working with Health Systems Global (HSG) to develop communications, share messages and engage with its members and the global community.

HSG is a membership organisation that aims to build globally connected health systems research and policy communities contribute for better health, equity and wellbeing. It convenes researchers, policymakers and implementers from around the world to develop the field of health systems research and unleash their collective capacity to create, share and apply knowledge to strengthen health systems. 

Priorities for the HSG communications team include leading HSG communications activities for the Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Vancouver, Canada, on 14-18 November 2016, and engagement and relationship building with HSG’s Thematic Working Groups to communicate and support their work, and, crucially, strengthen the links between them.
