Social media

February 2018

The following resource was originally developed for a research uptake workshop held at the Kemri Wellcome Trust Research Programme, Kenya from 12–14 September 2017. The workshop covered the stages of developing a research uptake strategy, steps to writing a policy brief, an introduction to data visualisation and tips for using social media for research uptake.

A second workshop held in Bangkok with colleagues from the International Health Policy Program, led to the development of additional resources about developing a digital communications strategy, writing for the web and using photos.

The tools cover:

  • What is social media?
  • Uses for social media in research uptake
  • Online global health movements
  • RESYST on social media
  • How to get the most from twitter
