The Health Systems Collaborative (HSC) links scientists from Oxford with scientists from low and middle-income countries to create new knowledge aimed at strengthening health systems and build capacity in applied, multidisciplinary global health research through the bi-directional transfer of knowledge.

Health Systems Collaborative logoHealth systems strengthening is key to achieving the new UN Sustainable Development Goals through universal coverage with high quality health care. The Health Systems Collaborative (HSC) is led in Oxford by Professor Mike English and Professor Sassy Molyneux working together with a senior team including Dr Chris Paton, Dr Jake McKnight and Dr Sebastian Fuller. With different backgrounds and expertise, they often work as a multidisciplinary research team with LMIC scientists and collaborators from Oxford, the UK more widely and globally. These teams typically also include LMIC and Oxford PhD/DPhil students drawn from a range of academic backgrounds. Research approaches are representative of Health Policy and Systems Research, Health Services and Delivery Research and Implementation Science and typically employ multiple or mixed methods to evaluate complex interventions (the HSDN project being one example).
