Health System Research by Vijiji International.
Vijiji International focuses on positive development for health through research in that it participate in producing an expanded and accelerated evidence-based knowledge to improve the effectiveness of health systems. The fact that the various research initiatives originate from different research backgrounds (biomedicine, social sciences, organization of services, health economics, etc.) has led to an inconsistent use of terminology to describe the health system research. Multiple definitions of operational research, implementation research, and health systems research have been proposed in recent years and many of these define the scope of their research very broadly, resulting in considerable overlap between definitions.Vijiji International is focused on Operational research and implementation research platforms that will use and produce evidences to build the gap between the communities and health facility in one pillar of health systems research.
