Eldis resources

Eldis is an online information service providing free access to up-to-date research on international development issues. The resources below are the most recent updates on the Eldis guides to Health Systems and Policy from FHS countries.

Future Health Systems is a research consortium working to improve access, affordability and quality of health services for the poor. We are a partnership of leading research institutes from across the globe working in a variety of contexts: in low-income countries (Bangladesh, Uganda), middle-income countries (China, India) and fragile states (Afghanistan) to build resilient health systems for the future. After a successful first five-year phase from 2006-2011 (see our success stories), we are entering a new six-year phase of research, funded mainly by the UK Department of International Development (DFID).
