Health Systems Trust currently operates through three units:
- Health Systems Research
- Health Systems Strengthening
- Corporate Services
The Health Systems Research Unit conducts policy-relevant health systems research to strengthen the district health system, its support mechanisms and priority programmes. We focus on improving knowledge management, translating research into policy and practice, and building capacity within the paradigm of Essential National Health Research.
The Health Systems Strengthening Unit provides implementation support through the strategic use, analysis and distribution of health and related information to enhance evidence-based management. HST facilitators based in the districts work closely with health district management teams and healthcare workers to transfer skills through training and mentoring for sustainable quality improvement in service delivery.
Health Systems Trust’s Corporate Services division provides essential and specialist support services within the organisation. It delivers a comprehensive and integrated finance, human resources, information technology, administration, and marketing and communications function.
