Health Systems Knowledge Network

The Health Systems Knowledge Network is part of the Commission on Social Determinants of Health for the World Health Organization. BasedCentre for Health Policy, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, the network carries out research on the different ways that health systems are designed, operate and financed.

It reviews evidence on the effectiveness of different models for health systems to improve health equity outcomes. In an effort to gather and subsequently mainstream knowledge and action on how to overcome social barriers to health, the focus will be on innovative approaches that effectively incorporate action on social determinants of health. The recommendations will be highly relevant for countries with tight resources.

Publications and country and regional case studies are available to download from the website.
