Share your ideas on a theme for the Fifth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research

Following a highly successful symposium in November, it is already time to start thinking about HSR 2018, which will be held in Liverpool, UK. One of the first and key elements of the preparations is to agree on a conference theme. The purpose of the theme is to:

  • Focus attention and motivate participation in the symposium

  • Shape programme development and abstract selection

  • Inform global debates and national agendas

We received ideas and suggestions on themes for HSR2018 via the Liverpool postcards at the Fourth Global Symposium in Vancouver, but we are keen to ensure that everyone who has an idea has an opportunity to put it forward. With this in mind, the Program Working Group is seeking input from HSG Members and Stakeholders on the following question:

  • What would be a theme that would attract you to contribute to and participate in the 2018 meeting?

Now is your chance to help inform the focus of the HSR2018 theme! Please send your ideas to: [email protected] or share your ideas on Twitter or Facebook using the hashtag #HSR2018 by Tuesday 28th of February.

With best wishes,

Kara Hanson, Aku Kwamie, Kumanan Rasanathan
