The term ‘learning health systems’ is not new. But widespread consensus that learning is crucial for health system performance is not matched by shared understanding of how health systems learn. The speaker will present ideas for such shared understanding based on a recent report by the WHO’s Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research. Co-edited by the speaker, the report highlights different ways in which health systems learn, outcomes of learning, levels of health system organisation at which learning takes place and conditions that facilitate learning. A shared understanding of ‘learning health systems’ can serve as a useful guide for actions and investments to strengthen health systems worldwide.
