Experts from the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) shall be participating at the 2016 4th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research taking place from 14th to 18th November 2016 in Vancouver, Canada. The Symposium whose theme is Resilient and responsive health systems for a changing world, brings together stakeholders in health systems and policy research.

Representing AFIDEP at the Symposium will be Dr. Rose Oronje (Director, Science Communications and Evidence Uptake).

The Symposium seeks to stimulate debate around health systems with a focus on resilience, responsiveness and innovation. The discussions on resilience will point to the fact that health systems must be resilient in order to absorb shocks such as environmental disasters, infectious disease outbreaks, hidden epidemics of mental illness and malnutrition, among others. The discussions will also be geared towards sustaining the gains already made, or risk having decades of investment wiped out.

Further, discussions on responsiveness will address the importance of anticipating change as well as harnessing emerging opportunities to promote universal health coverage and universal access to effective interventions. In addition, the importance of robust and inclusive decision-making processes will be tackled as a critical component of overcoming the diverse sets of current and future health challenges. The Symposium also seeks to shed light on the importance of re-orienting health systems to be more people-centred.

With regard to innovation, the Symposium will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to engage on health systems being incubators of innovation. The discussions will allow for collective engagement and interrogation of opportunities and modalities of transformation for resilient health systems.
