The project supports the 4th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research, hosted by Canada in Vancouver B.C. on November 14-18, 2016. The Symposium aims to build capacity in health in developing countries and the world by bringing together global health experts to share best practices and lessons learned to strengthen health systems. The theme for the 2016 Symposium is “Building Resilient and Responsive Health Systems for a Changing World.” The Symposium will consist of plenary sessions and seminars that will highlight innovative approaches to strengthening health systems using health systems research to generate evidence for decision-making, best practices and capacity building to inform health policies and programming. Other key issues of focus will include reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health, infectious diseases including Ebola and HIV/AIDs, determinants of health, health information systems, and aboriginal health.
