The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research invites applications from policy-makers from low- and middle-income countries who are involved and interested in strengthening health systems, to participate in the 5th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research, to be held in Liverpool, UK from 8-12 October 2018. Applications should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 19, 2018. The Alliance will cover the costs of participation for successful candidates.
This is the second iteration of this initiative. The Alliance also invited 20 senior policy-makers and managers to the 4th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in 2016. This initiative led to: increased dialogue around the interface between research and policy; the development of a policy checklist tool used in policy institutions to support evidence informed decision making; and strengthened relationships between policy makers at the regional level.
Policy- and decision-makers who fit the following criteria are eligible to take part in the programme:
- Involved in policy- and decision-making at district, state, regional, provincial, federal, or national level; • Has at least 3 years of senior management and policy-making experience in the health system or a related sector; • Is confident of retaining a similar position and responsibilities for at least the next 3 years; • Has demonstrated interest and commitment to evidence-informed decision-making, including the use of research; • Is from a low- or middle-income country.
Women are especially encouraged to apply and will be given priority. Details here.
