Abstract

The quest for robust, affordable, consistent methods for filling global health information gaps is familiar. But frequently the focus is on how the international community can extract population-based data, rather than how countries and communities can use robust methods to understand and act on their own health and disease burdens.

This week, researchers are convening in Vancouver, Canada, for the 4th Global Symposium on Health Systems Research organised by Health Systems Global. At the same time, the INDEPTH Network (the International Network for the Demographic Evaluation of Populations and Their Health) is meeting in Kampala, Uganda. INDEPTH and Health Systems Global are distinctive groups committed to research for action.
