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.

Systems Thinking Call for Papers

The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) have announced a new Call for Papers for a peer-reviewed Journal Supplement on: “Advancing knowledge and practice for using systems thinking for equitable health systems strengthening in LMICs”. See here: http://www.who.int/alliance-hpsr/alliancehpsr_callpaperstsupplement.pdf

You will notice that:

they aim to have 80% of primary authors from LICs;
there are financial incentives for writing and attending Beijing and another follow-up meeting; and
the deadline for proposals (abstract and plan) is soon (April 22).
