Future Health Systems at the ResUp MeetUp, Nairobi, 9-12 February 2015

Future Health Systems

Future Health Systems and Africa Hub partners will be participating at the ResUp MeetUp Symposium and Training Exchange in Nairobi from 9 to 12 February 2015, which will bring together members of the ResUp MeetUp community to share learning and best practice, and build capacity for research uptake. Kakaire Ayub Kirunda (Makerere University School of Public Health, Uganda) and Shibaji Bose (Indian Institute for Health Management Research, Kolkata) will be co-facilitating a training session on media engagement skills to influence policy. Nasreen Jessani (Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, USA), Mabel Nangami (Moi University, Kenya) and Richard Ayah (University of Nairobi) will be delivering training on how to use issue briefs as effective and practical tools to highlight issues and provide practical solutions. Nasreen, with Jeff Knezovich, will also be providing training on social network analysis as a research methodology that can help those working on research uptake to identify knowledge flows and useful entry points, and presenting research from Kenya on strategies to strengthen engagement between health researchers and policymakers. In addition, Richard will be presenting the results of the FHS Africa Hub capacity assessment. Finally, Tom Barker (Instiute of Development Studies, UK) will present learning from the experience of using online dialogue as a tool of knowledge sharing and research across contexts and domains.
