Systems Thinking for Capacity in Health

We believe that systems thinking and complexity science can be transformational in global health by increasing local capacity and shared learning, and minimizing unintended consequences.

Report from conferences: CORE group, and Health Impact Assessment

This past month has been a busy travel month for me. I lead discussions about the HSS Consensus Statements at the CORE group fall meeting in Washington, DC, USA, and the Health Impact Assessment Conference in Rotterdam. Here are a few common themes from those conferences:

1. There truly is a broad recognition that health systems strengthening is a key to consistent, sustainable health improvements.

2. The timing for this movement is ideal.

3. Reaching a true consensus will be very difficult.

4. It will be necessary to engage a variety of stakeholder.

I’m heading off to the Global Forum for Health Research in Havana in a couple weeks, and I’ll update you as to how things went.
