Research for stronger health systems during and after crisis

Emerging themes from ReBUILD's research on post-conflict health systems 

Watch full video animation including themes - here.

Conflict continues to affect the lives and health of huge numbers of the world’s poorest people. Health systems are severely affected by conflict. Conflict creates change and disrupts the balance and relationships between the supply of health care services and their ability to meet the health needs and demands of the population essential for a health system to work effectively.

As recovery from conflict or crisis begins, so should the process of rebuilding health systems. However, relatively little is known about the real effectiveness of different approaches to health systems strengthening in these settings.

The ReBUILD Consortium is an international research partnership funded by the UK Department for International Development which has been working since 2011 to support improved access of the poor to effective health care and reduced health costs burdens, through the production and uptake of a coherent body of high quality, policy-relevant new research on health systems financing, human resources for health, and aid-architecture in post-conflict countries.

Find out more about some of the post-conflict health systems themes emerging from ReBUILD’s work, about the research projects which have informed these themes, and about the partners who make up the ReBUILD Consortium.
