WHO Strategy on Health Policy and Systems Research (2012)


The WHO Strategy on Health Policy and Systems Research, Changing Mindsets, advocates for greater generation and use of research evidence in health policy and builds a case for further investment in this critical area of research. Launched in November 2012, Changing Mindsets represents a unique milestone in the evolution of health policy and systems research as the first-ever global-level strategy on HPSR. The strategy is intended for a wide network of health systems actors including researchers, policy-makers, implementers, and other practitioners.
