There is a growing interest in new technologies and innovative organizational arrangements as a means to improve a health system’s performance. However, only a small proportion of the many investments in innovations have been shown to have an impact on health system performance at scale. The papers in this series analyze the factors that enable and constrain the emergence and diffusion of health system innovations. They bring alternative perspectives to this issue, based on diverse local contexts and different types of innovation. The aim is to provide a stronger basis for the formulation of strategies for managing health system change in low- and middle-income countries.
