A team from the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM), Antwerp was asked by the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research to map health systems research, health systems research capacity and knowledge translation in a number of low-and middle income countries. The team drew on Emerging Voices and ITM alumni to conduct interviews with high-level policy makers, health systems researchers and policy brokers in 26 LMICs. This paper summarizes the key findings.
