Systems Dynamics Modeling for Health Campaigns in Zimbabwe

Laura Smith of Research Foundation for the State University of New York in the U.S. will develop a decision-making tool that can plan more effective health campaigns in low- and middle-income countries by considering any competing interests of stakeholders. Health campaigns involve many different government and private stakeholders with differing interests. They will apply a systems dynamics modelling approach to two health campaigns for children under five-years-old in Zimbabwe by holding group modelling workshops with multisectoral stakeholders to identify perceived barriers and potential solutions. These data will be combined with published data to develop a quantitative decision-making tool with a user-friendly interface that can be used by the different stakeholders to select the preferred campaign design.
