The report describes the evolution of Health Policy and Systems Research (HPSR) and provides figures on the number of publications produced, funding trends and institutional capacity in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to conduct HPSR. It provides insight into how the multidisciplinary and systems approach used in HPSR can help countries advance the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) agenda. In the SDG era, where tackling inequity is centre stage, the report provides practical and insightful recommendations on how to reorient health research so that it may respond more effectively to public health challenges on a national and global level.
