A special issue of the Pan American Journal of Public Health published by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) with the support of the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research (AHPSR), provides scientific evidence supporting stakeholder centred implementation research as a crucial component of effective public health and clinical policies and programs.


The World Health Organization and Pan American Health Organization, Institut Pasteur and the networks of Fiocruz, CONSISE and ISARIC generated standardized clinical and epidemiological research protocols and questionnaires to address key public health questions. These protocols have been designed to maximize the likelihood that data and biological samples are systematically collected and shared rapidly in a format that can be easily aggregated, tabulated and analyzed across many different settings globally.


The ER-SDG initiative will focus on developing contextualized knowledge bases, convening dialogues and strengthening capacities, to facilitate associations between researchers and users of research findings. Health policy and systems challenges to be considered can be inter-sectoral and address a wide array of issues. We are accepting applications on any topic (i.e. communicable diseases, noncommunicable diseases, child and maternal health, emergency preparedness and disaster relief, among others) related to the SDGs from low- and middle-income countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. We are specifically encouraging submissions from Bolivia, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Suriname.


PAHO/WHO is urging health system policy makers, scholars and researchers in its member countries to submit abstracts related to "resilient and responsive health systems for a changing world", this year's theme for the Fourth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research.

Individual abstracts are to be received by March 20 2016.

Travel support, to the extent available, may be provided to accepted presenters from low- and middle-income countries as well as full-time students.
