Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research

The Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research (AHPSR) is an international collaboration housed as an international partnership within the World Health Organization. Since its inception in 1999, the Alliance's mission has been to promote the generation and use of health policy and systems research (HPSR) as a means to strengthen the health systems in low- and middle-income countries. The Alliance aims to make progress towards this through three objectives:

  • Stimulating the generation and synthesis of policy-relevant health systems knowledge
  • Promoting the dissemination and use of health policy and systems knowledge
  • Strengthening capacity for the generation, dissemination and use of health policy and systems research knowledge among researchers, policy-makers and other stakeholder
