An initiative of Health Systems Transformation Platform, the India HPSR Fellowship is organised in collaboration with Indian & International institutions with expertise in HPSR. It identifies twenty Indian mid-career public health professionals every year and trains them over a period of 18 months in HPSR methods along with practical experience of conducting a HPSR study.
Research with a systems perspective, that explores health issues within their specific contexts, is key for designing solutions for improved health outcomes. HPSR methods allow us to focus on the system as a whole and generate evidence for policy making. Hence, the vision for strategically building capacity of researchers and practitioners in HPSR, culminated in the development of the India HPSR Fellowship program.
The program is supported by the Sir Ratan Tata Trusts, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Access Health International.
