UFS Centre for Health Systems Research and Development
UFS Centre for Health Systems Research and Development – Check below:
Established at the University of the Free State (UFS) in 1993, the Centre for Health Systems Research and Development (CHSR&D) stems from a rich tradition of research and training in medical sociology and sociology of health.
We generate and disseminate scientific knowledge on health and health systems—including policies, strategies, practices, and priority programmes—and use this knowledge to promote health systems strengthening.
We also develop capacity for health systems via implementation science and postgraduate research training.
Our work is led by a multidisciplinary approach to research design and implementation. We have in-depth expertise in a range of key methodological approaches: quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods.
