The W3 Functions

This post explains each of the four W3 Functions — the system-level functions that need to be happening to maximise the impact of peer work within a health response — and how they relate to each other.

We cover everything you need to understand the W3 Framework, which maps the role of peer work in a public health response.

Systems thinking is an extremely important approach in public health. This post explains what it is and why it is so important.
