IHP Network is an initiative of the Health Policy Unit at the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp (ITM). The aim of the Network is to boost the influence of scholars from the Global South on the global health agenda, with a focus on young health policy and systems researchers – aka “Switching the Poles”. The activities of IHP include knowledge management, particularly towards providing a trusted source of curated health policy news and key global health publications. The Network offers a platform for blogs and articles, especially for authors from low-and-middle income countries and networks with other global health actors.
The weekly International Health Policies (IHP) newsletter , the fortnightly Politiques Internationales de Santé (PIS) , and the output of the Health Services Delivery Community of Practice are the key resources that support the knowledge management and networking pillars of the IHP Network.
