Request for Proposals: Analysis of fund flows for HPSR relevant to LMICs
The field of health policy and systems research (HPSR) has witnessed rapid development over the past few years, as evinced from the success of the Third Global Symposia on Health Systems Research. However, the growth and development of the field is greatly dependent on the availability of adequate and reliable funding.
There exists a considerable literature that analyzes trends in Development Assistance for Health as well as on health research funding more broadly. However there is a lack of easily accessible information on funding for HPSR at the global level that can be used to both inform decision-makers of the situation and serve as a tool to advocate for the field. As part of its mandate to advocate for the field of HPSR, the Alliance seeks to address this gap and through this bid, is inviting proposals for the development of a document/background paper to analyze funding for HPSR over the period 2009-2014.
