This collaborative research project focuses on enabling leaders to persuade health care officials to adopt innovative practices designed to improve health outcomes for women and children in India. Surveys, conducted with thousands of health care workers, will enable the research team to map the social networks, attitudes, and motivations of these health care officials.

This unique combination of network methodologies and social influence strategies examines not only who, but also how individuals should be targeted in order to scale up healthcare solutions.
