Implementation Research in Health: A Practical Guide – WHO – Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research – 9 October 2013

ISBN 978 92 4 150621 2

Extract from the executive summary

“A key challenge faced by the global health community is how to take proven interventions and implement them in the real world. Affordable, life-saving interventions exist to confront many of the health challenges we face, but there is little understanding of how best to deliver those interventions across the full range of existing health systems and in the wide diversity of possible settings. Our failure to effectively implement interventions carries a price.”

Systems thinking for health systems strengthening in English [pdf 1.62Mb]

“Overview

This latest flagship report from the Alliance offers a fresh and practical approach to strengthening health systems through “systems thinking”. In its “Ten steps to systems thinking,” the report shows how we can better capture the wisdom of diverse health system stakeholders in designing solutions to system problems. It suggests ways to more realistically forecast how health systems might respond to system-strengthening interventions, while also exploring potential synergies and dangers among those interventions.
Health systems strengthening is rising on political agendas worldwide. This Report will deepen understanding and stimulate fresh thinking among stewards of health systems, health systems researchers, and development partners.”
