Lucy’s research broadly focusses on how to strengthen health systems to offer better public value, with particular concern for health equity. She has a track record of research around: health policy implementation; decentralisation, district health systems and primary health care; user fees and financing issues; and leadership and management. As she has a particular interest in understanding health system actors’ decision-making, her work also considers how trust and power relations shape health system dynamics and complexity.

 Lucy’s teaching focusses on health policy, health leadership, health systems and health policy and systems research. She is also involved in a wider range of capacity development activities within the field of Health Policy and Systems Research.
