2nd Global Health Systems Research Symposium in Beijing: new aspirations for research on health reform and universal health coverageRGHI Administrator 01/11/2012
The 2nd Global HSR Symposium which took place in Beijing from October 30-November 3, 2012, turned out to be a very stimulating event. Over 1750 participants from all continents gathered to explore the pros and cons of the latest health policy trend: Universal Health Coverage. Those of us who still remember ‘Health for All by the Year 2000’ may have wondered what was new, but five great plenaries and almost 200 break-out sessions made clear that the global health research community is vibrant, critical, and willing to take on new methodological and policy challenges. The congress also saw the launch of a new Society ‘Health Systems Global’. RGHI participated and helped chair a number of sessions.
