Abstract:
Countries that have invested consistently in the broad spectrum of health research are now advancing rapidly in health and in economic development. In many countries, however, the benefits of health research are not optimized due to low investments, absence of a culture of evidence-based policy-making or lack of capacity. This joint publication (Global Forum for Health Research and Council on Health Research for Development) briefly provides unfinished and new research agendas, new trends in health research, components of favourable national health research systems (NHRS) and suggestions for countries and research sponsors to make research for health work.
