Future Health Systems is a research consortium working to improve access, affordability and quality of health services for the poor. We are a partnership of leading research institutes from across the globe working in a variety of contexts: in low-income countries (Bangladesh, Uganda), middle-income countries (China, India) and fragile states (Afghanistan) to build resilient health systems for the future. After a successful first five-year phase from 2006-2011 (see our success stories), we are entering a new six-year phase of research, funded mainly by UK aid.

FHS at the IDS 50th Anniversary Conference, 5-6 July 2016

Future Health Systems

As the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) turns 50 and development moves into a new era, IDS is inviting leading scholars, policymakers and practitioners to participate in a two day conference States, markets and society in a reconfigured world: Defining a new era for development on 5-6 July 2016 to debate the challenges and implications.

Future Health Systems will be hosting a panel session:

Beyond 'Public' and 'Private' in Health Systems
This panel will explore the changing relationships between government, markets and social organisations in the health systems of low- and middle-income countries. It will explore the realities of the pluralistic systems that have emerged with a wide variety of actors providing health services and drugs in terms of their ownership, level of skill and relationship to the regulatory system. The panel will focus on strategies for improving the performance of pluralistic health systems in providing access to safe and effective health services and on innovative partnerships that have emerged.

Chair: Gerry Bloom, IDS

David Peters, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, USA
Lewis Husain, Associate Researcher, IDS
Anu Joshi, IDS
Bruno Meessen, Institute of Tropical Medicine, Belgium
