The HPSR database has been developed as a result of a study undertaken by the Teaching and Learning Health Policy and Systems Research Thematic Working Group. Commissioned by the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research, the study did a global mapping of current teaching and training programmes focused on HPSR relevant to low- and middle-income countries. It intended to assess their reach and diversity in terms of content and modalities, identifying major gaps and opportunities to expand HPSR teaching capacity. The findings were published in February 2015
The development of this database has been made possible through support from the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research, the Wellcome Trust and INIS Communication.
