[Comment] India’s new health systems knowledge platform—making research matter

The recent decision by the Government of India’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to set up the National Knowledge Platform (NKP) for health systems and public health research1 could be a watershed in how key decisions get made in India’s complex, federal health system. The NKP aims to support health systems research and its uptake in policy. It has been established after consultations involving the central government, the Alliance for Health Policy and Systems Research, WHO’s country office in India, and national-level technical organisations.
