Health Systems Research Symposium, October 2018, Liverpool

4 October, 2018

Dear HIFA colleagues,

In a few days time the Health Systems Research Symposium takes place in Liverpool, UK, 8-12 October 2018

Regrettably I won't be able to attend myself, but I am sure lots of HIFA members will be there. If you are going, I would like to encourage you to invite all delegates to join HIFA to continue the discussions after the conference - especially discussions around meeting the healthcare information needs of health workers, citizens and policymakers, and how better to support quality of health care in LMICs. Please point them to our website:

We wish all participants a successful conference. Please do share any observations relevant to HIFA by sending an email to

Best wishes, Neil
