Abstract

Global Forum for Health Research annual forums are a premier international event in health research for development. In 2007, Forum 11 took place in Beijing, People's Republic of China, bringing together some 600 key stakeholders to discuss research issues, best practices and gaps in securing equitable access. This Forum 11 report provides an overview of the key issues discussed, detailing ideas on the use of evidence in policy- and decision-making, encouraging innovation in research and promoting equity and human rights approaches to health research. Other central themes include: research priority setting, research capacity strengthening, possibilities with inter-sectoral collaboration, advocacy for more research and resources and communication of research results. The publication includes a user-friendly CD-ROM that features the final meeting documents.
