HST promotes scientific research into health systems in South Africa with the principle objective of designing and planning programs and evaluations towards restructuring the health system and the development of a comprehensive National Health System based on equity. The core activities of HST are: health systems research, health systems development, advocacy, capacity development and information dissemination.
HST is guided by an independent Board of Trustees, which comprises a diverse group of leaders with professional standing and expertise in health systems development and public health. HST has a sound working relationship with the Department of Health, and also works closely with parliamentarians, academic and research institutions and civil society.

HST works in partnership with the University of Ottawa on public health projects and this is how the organization became known to HRI. HST hosted an HRI NetCorps intern last year and due to the very successful placement, HRI is confident this partnership will continue to produce high caliber placements with substantive work for interns to undertake while based with HST.
