Lenses, Metaphors and Research Priorities on Community Health Systems: Workshop Report

Lusaka workshop

This report has been compiled by a group of public health and health system players, engaged in thinking, researching, policy-making and advocacy on community health systems (CHS). With an explicit interdisciplinary focus, this group met for a week (10-14 June 2019) at the Chaminuka Lodge in Lusaka, Zambia to collate our collective understandings of the CHS and generate a set of research priorities that can form the basis of future collaboration. Our common starting point was our positioning as embedded researchers and practitioners in our respective country settings, namely, Zambia, Sweden, South Africa, Guatemala, Tanzania and Uganda.
