Sharing ReBUILD's research in UgandaWednesday, 30 Nov 2016
ReBUILD’s partners at the Makerere University School of Public Health are holding a national level meeting in Kampala on Wednesday 30th November to share and discuss findings from all their research. A high-level audience will be attending, with the Minister of Health, Dr Jane Aceng officially opening the meeting, and several National Members of Parliament and district health officials from northern areas responding to the evidence presented.
ReBUILD’s research in Uganda has covered a number of different areas of the health system, and has focused on the north of the country (Acholi sub region) which is facing particular health system challenges after emerging from many years of conflict.
These projects have been:
- Understanding changes in health financing and poor households’ expenditure on health
- Exploring the development of the health workforce in post conflict areas
- Aid Architecture: Exploring the link between Governance and Aid Effectiveness in Strengthening Post Conflict Health Systems in Uganda
- Understanding and improving deployment systems to rural and remote areas used by large employers of health personnel in post conflict/crisis settings.
Additionally, PhD research linked to ReBUILD has been exploring (i) the evolution of the private sector during and after conflict, and (ii) equity in maternal health care services in post-conflict Northern and non-conflict East-Central Uganda.
The responses and discussions following the presentation of this research will inform the way forward for the MUSPH team and health sector stakeholders in supporting evidence-based policy and practice for equitable health systems strengthening in the country.
More on this meeting will be shared after the event.
