Help us find an institutional home!

At the Beijing Health Systems Research Symposium last year, a new society was formed: Health Systems Global (HSG). According to their website, "Health Systems Global is the first international membership organization fully dedicated to promoting health systems research and knowledge translation."

Among the society's activities are the establishment of 'thematic working groups'. It is anticipated that they will provide a platform for membership interaction and the exchange of experiences around particular issues in health systems research.

The Scientific Advisory Committee of the Private Sector in Health Symposium has agreed to put forward an application for a thematic working group under HSG. The hope is that HSG will provide an institutional home for the group, which will, in turn, help keep it a thriving and diverse community.

As part of the application process, we are asked to include names of potential members of the thematic working group. Please take a moment to read over our application and join the many others who have already expressed their interest by signing your name to the application by 23 May 2013. That's this Thursday!

We want to make sure our application is robust as possible to ensure its successful consideration. Every name added lends that much more credibility -- we need you!

Please note that you do not have to be a current member of HSG to indicate your interest.
