Research for stronger health systems during and after crisis

Social Network Analysis (SNA) for systems development – application to aid effectiveness in Uganda

Date: Tuesday October 9th 2018

Session team: Frederick Ssengooba and Christine Kashobya Kirunga (Makerere University School of Public Health, Uganda)

About the session

Unlike the dominant health systems analytical methods that collect information about the agent or actor characteristics and behaviour, applied SNA is a useful tool to explore the interactions and links between agents. This Skills Building Session will introduce and create confidence in the applications of applied techniques of SNA in health systems research.


Who is the session aimed at?

This session will be of relevance for researchers, academics, communication and research uptake specialists, students and policy makers interested in better understanding linkages, networks, knowledge and resource flows in health systems, particularly in dynamic settings including post conflict and crisis.
