It’s curtains for the First Global Symposium on Health Systems Research and we close with a proposal to set up an international society on health systems research (HSR), knowledge and innovation.

The society aims to harness science to accelerate universal health coverage. It will support regional and national efforts to strengthen HSR and catalyse scientists’ contributions towards setting norms, standards and practices in HSR.

You can find out more about the society in an upcoming SciDev.Net news story.
