ABSTRACT:

Health system is strengthened by health research systems in order to achieve cost-effective treatment for the needy and better global health status. However, significant confusion and ambiguity lie in terms of boundaries, features, methods and definitions. Production, translation, reproduction and implementation are different barriers which add to the complexity of the health research system. Other challenges include comparative, generalizability, transferability, applicability, standards, community diversity and priority-setting. We can support health systems research by taking it as a field of scientific endeavor that has shared a language, cross-jurisdictional learning, interdisciplinary approaches and international society. We can also strengthen national capacity at individual, national and organizational level. We can also take health system research a major health system function. By arresting such issues and barriers the health system research can be supported to meet global health challenges and outcomes.
