Realist evaluation of networks in LMIC health systems

My thesis focuses on how networks are employed to help solve problems of poor service in LMIC health systems. The first phase, currently ongoing, is a scoping review to develop an understanding of different types of networks and the purposes for which they are used in health systems through the development of an operational typology of networks in health systems. This will lead to a realist review to develop a program theory on purposes and uses of networks in LMIC health systems and subsequently a realist evaluation of a network to refine the program theory, as well as to identify best practices to optimize network scale up.
