We will draw on research that has used Kingdon’s Multiple Streams theory of policy-making in analysing local health policy development. We find that the theory insufficiently recognises network characteristics within each of the three streams. For policy entrepreneurs to identify and open windows of opportunity for policy change it will be helpful to have the ability to visualise, over time and space, network configurations in each of the streams. Trials of a dummy network visualisation application have furthermore shown that network visualisations may assist health stakeholders to reaffirm, reconsider or strengthen their positions in the network. Both developments would strengthen the integrity and comprehensiveness of policies for health.

Keywords:   policy networks, multiple streams model, policy entrepreneurs, policy for health, healthy public policy, network visualisation software
