We are pleased to announce the launch of Health Systems Global’s new initiative: Reimagine health systems: future scenarios for better health and social justice. With your help, this will explore the potential for changes and transformations in health, health systems, and wellbeing.
From November 2020 through to March 2021, Reimagine Health Systems: Future Scenarios for Better Health and Social Justice will be collating about the transformative changes and possible futures for health systems at home, work and globally. The initiative has two stages.
Stage One: Changes and their impacts on health systems
From 12 to 30 November, we will use a crowdsourcing tool to collect ideas about what could bring the greatest transformative changes to health, health systems, and wellbeing, and what the impacts might be. The research is part of the Sixth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (HSR2020) with each survey corresponding to a sub-theme. Please do contribute to the survey through the following links:
- Engaging political forces: What political changes are affecting health systems?
- Engaging social, economic and environmental forces: What social, economic, and environmental changes are affecting health systems?
- Engaging technological, data and social innovations: What technological, data, and social innovations are affecting health systems?
The surveys take approximately 10 minutes each and will close on 30 November 2020.
Stage Two: Future scenarios
From January, we will begin our investigation into the range of potential outcomes and possible futures for health systems. We will invite people to share their ideas describing possible futures for health systems that you think could emerge when transformative changes are made.
The ideas will then be curated into a set of scenarios that will be considered by the participants in HSR2020. They will take on investigating the challenges and opportunities for health systems in these possible futures – and what we might want to do to create better futures.
This is a hugely exciting initiative that we hope you will join us by sharing your ideas for how we can #ReimagineHealthSystems.
