Esteemed congratulations to our PhD candidate Krista English for having co-authored a chapter in the World Health Organization’s first-ever World Report on Health Policy and Systems Research (HPSR) which was launched in Stockholm.
The Report provides insight into how the multidisciplinary and systems approach used in HPSR can help countries advance the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) agenda. Historically, biomedical and clinical research dominated the health arena, while there was little focus on systems and policy research. Our research has found that from 1990 to 2015, there has been a five-fold increase in the number of HPSR publications produced annually and increasingly, these are being generated by authors in low-and-middle-income countries (LMICs).
