See you at the Global Symposium!
The Consortium for Health Policy and Systems Analysis in Africa (CHEPSAA) is busy putting the finishing touches on its preparations for the 3rd Global Symposium on Health Systems Research that will take place in Cape Town next week and very much looking forward to engaging with others in this field!
Networking and engagement with others is a key pillar of CHEPSAA's work and is seen as a way of learning from others, further developing skills such as communication and networking, building a community of researchers and educators in the field and building the field, particularly in Africa.
CHEPSAA will be active in the Symposium in the following key ways:
The CHEPSAA Emerging Leaders Programme will link up with the Emerging Voices initiative at a pre-conference that will take place at the University of the Western Cape on 29 September 2014.
On 1 October, the CHEPSAA Emerging Leaders Programme, will have an organised session entitled Emerging Leaders in Health Policy and Systems Research (HPSR): Assuming Leadership in HPSR - Personal reflections and lessons
On 2 October, CHEPSAA will have an organised session entitled Towards future generations: CHEPSAA's experience of developing post-graduate HPSR training courses
We are also very much looking forward to the session on health leadership and a DrPH degree, which will take place on 1 October, 14:30-16:00, room 2.44-2.46. This session overlaps with CHEPSAA's work and will be chaired by Irene Agyepong, one of CHEPSAA's principal investigators.
You will also be able to interact with CHEPSAA through our marketplace stall (stand 51). At this stall you will, among other things, be able to:
- Have a look at and get copies of key CHEPSAA materials, including our open-access Master's-level courses Introduction to Complex Health Systems, Introduction to Health Policy and Systems Research and Health Policy and Policy Analysis;
- View a presentation on CHEPSAA's work; and
- Interact with many of the emerging and experienced researchers and educators from Africa and Europe who are part of the CHEPSAA programme of work.
