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.
Systems Thinking for Capacity in Health (ST4C Health) is a group of health professionals, students, and concerned citizens dedicated to the strengthening of health systems in low income countries around the globe. We strongly believe that systems thinking – a novel way of thinking about and approaching health – is a new frontier with significant potential for strengthening health systems and building capacity. ST4C Health collaborates with health professionals around the world to disseminate systems thinking ideas and methods; catalyze the formation of action networks; mobilize stakeholders; and perform research. We are very grateful for the financial support provided by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF). We hope you will join us in this cause as we seek to eliminate health disparities and achieve health equity globally.
Dr. Chad Swanson, an emergency physician and passionate advocate for increased systems thinking in health, is the founder and manager of this group.
