Systems Thinking for Capacity in Health

We believe that systems thinking and complexity science can be transformational in global health by increasing local capacity and shared learning, and minimizing unintended consequences.

Video – Health Change Agents in Complex Environments

Healthcare workers can be powerful agents for change in their communities. ST4C Health is excited to present this 5 minute video that follows Bernice, a midwife in a small village. Bernice uses systems thinking concepts to make significant, lasting changes in her community. By keeping her mind open to new ideas and sharing her own ideas with other healthcare workers, Bernice improves the health of newborn babies and mothers in her village. What positive change would you like to see in your community?

We hope to contribute to a global health community focused on increasing local capacity in low-income countries by empowering them to address the emerging health challenges in their own communities. We believe this can best be achieved through widespread application of systems thinking concepts.
