HPSR Learnings from Global Health Financial Initiatives:
While HPSR outputs in Global North had doubled from 91,900 in 1991 to 178,800 in 2001, the corresponding increase seen in Global South was reportedly much less and discouraging, from 3,900 to 8,200 for the same period1,2.
The Alliance for HPSR (AHPSR), a global partnership within the World Health Organization (WHO) was birthed following the WHO 1996 Ad Hoc Committee emphasis on health research, a year before the adoption of the ambitious MDGs.
HSR HPSR, and similar boundary-spanning fields such as operational research and implementation research are well suited to this changing landscape.
HPSR is a complex endeavor that requires multiple perspectives, approaches, and skill sets (Gilson et al.
In summary, four of five HPSR systematic reviews included a COI disclosure statement.
Our findings suggest that COI disclosures statements are less frequently included in systematic reviews of HPSR compared to systematic reviews in other fields.
As part of the HP Enterprise Security Products (ESP) business unit, HPSR will lead HP's security research agenda, leveraging existing HP research groups, including HP DVLabs, a research organization focused on vulnerability discovery and analysis, and HP Fortify Software Security Research, which is focused on developing software security practices.
A core focus of HPSR is to provide research that directly influences the development of the HP ESP portfolio.
The study focused on improvement of the skills of policy-makers in evidence-informed policy-making and the establishment of enabling environments and capacity for Health Policy and Systems Research (HPSR) for policy-makers, researchers and other stakeholders in the health sector.
Personal/private interactions also took place for individuals who desired more information either from the HPSR Study Team or from facilitators/resource persons.
The analysis and structure of the Results section were modeled on the health policy and system research (HPSR
) framework (21, 22), which was selected for its ability to capture the interdependence between health policy and health systems.
