The Harkness Fellowships are run by staff of the Commonwealth Fund’s International Health Policy and Practice Innovations program, with support from our valued partner organizations. 

Australia 

The Australian health system is a shared responsibility across Federal, State, and Territory governments. Starting in 2020, the Harkness Fellowships will be supported by the Australian Government and state and territory governments, bringing an international perspective to providing quality, safe, and affordable health care for all Australians.

Canada 

From 2001 through 2011, Harkness Associates were based in Canada and traveled to the U.S. to participate in Harkness seminars. From 2012 on, with support from the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI), Canada has had full-time Harkness Fellows. The fellowship is now supported by the newly formed organization, Healthcare Excellence Canada.

France 

Beginning in 2018, the French Ministry of Solidarity and Health and the Caisse Nationale de l’Assurance Maladie des Travailleurs (CNAMTS) have cosponsored the Harkness Fellowships to identify international policy innovations and best practices relevant to the French health care system.

New Zealand 

The Ministry of Health leads the country’s health and disability system, working across the health sector to deliver better health outcomes for New Zealanders. Starting in 2019, the Ministry supports the Harkness Fellowships to promote cross-national learning aimed at improving the health of all people and communities and identifying policy and delivery system innovations that can inform health reforms in New Zealand.

Norway 

Since 2010 the Research Council of Norway, through its health services research program and in collaboration with the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, has supported the Harkness Fellowships to promote stronger international links and inputs to Norwegian health policy and systems research.

United Kingdom 

Together the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and The Health Foundation support the Harkness Fellowships. The NIHR Academy is responsible for the development and coordination of NIHR academic training, career development, and research capacity development, while The Health Foundation is an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the United Kingdom.
