This stream of work aims to conduct systematic reviews on health systems research, particularly in the areas of:
- Human resources for health
- Health financing, and
- The role of the non-state sector
The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research’s work to date on these areas has been largely through its Centre for Systematic Reviews, along with the identification of priority research questions and a priority setting exercise for each theme.
This work was established in response to the pilot programme of reviews funded by the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research at the World Health Organisation.
The Alliance has supported four systematic review centres since 2007. Technical support has been provided largely by three collaborating partners – the Norwegian Satellite of the Cochrane Effective Practice and Organization of Care (EPOC) Group, the EPPI Centre, Institute of Education, University of London, and the Effective Health Care Research Programme Consortium, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
The review centres are led by:
The reviews were conducted with funding from Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research at the World Health Organisation.
