Health Research Policy and Systems

Title Abbreviation
Health Res Policy Syst
Electronic ISSN
Health service researchers, Policy Makers, Public Health Professionals
HRP&S covers all aspects of the organisation and use of health research – including agenda setting, building health research capacity, and how research as a whole benefits decision makers, practitioners in health and related fields, and society at large. HRP&S considers manuscripts that investigate the role of evidence-based health policy and health research systems in ensuring the efficient utilization and application of knowledge to improve health and health equity, especially in developing countries. Research is the foundation for improvements in public health. One problem is that people involved in different areas of research, together with managers and administrators in charge of research entities, do not always communicate sufficiently with each other and with other actors relevant to research systems such as policy makers, innovators, and those charged with funding research. How do those in research systems make sure that what they do will actually improve health? Do they have good links with the decision makers who can influence how their research findings are used? Is the money used to sponsor their activities spent wisely, fairly and efficiently? Are there means to assess the impact and utility of their work? How many of them are leaving the country for greener pastures? How can they be enticed to stay, or, perhaps often more importantly, return to low-middle income countries (LMICs) after developing their skills? How well informed is the public of the results of their research?
