Health Systems Heroes

Health Systems Heroes

A multi-media initiative

The FHS Health Systems Heroes multi-media initiative highlights the work of individuals who have led or contributed positive change within a health system. Health System Heroes exemplify the factors that FHS believes are crucial to the success of a health system, namely:

  • Unlocking community capabilities – actors who have played a critical role in identifying or harnessing community level resources in order to benefit the health system, or alternatively people who are community members who have contributed to the strengthening of health systems in a significant way.

  • Learning by doing – individuals who have used evidence and data in their day-to-day work to make decisions, or strengthen implementation processes, that have in turn strengthened the health system or expanded service coverage, particularly for vulnerable populations.

  • Innovation – people who have sought to bring innovation, either technical or organisational into the health system, and spread this innovation across the system.

The #HealthSystemsHeroes multi-media initiative was launched at the Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research in Vancouver from 14 to 18 November 2016.
