Past events

Webinar: Integrating gender into health system strengthening in conflict and crisis-affected settings; what’s in our toolkit?

In this webinar run by ReBUILD, RiNGs, Building Back Better and Health Systems Global, we explored how the process of focusing on gender has unfolded in different settings and shared a range of tools that interested researchers, policy makers and practitioners could use and adapt to stimulate progress towards gender equity.

Watch both the recording of the webinar and the related video featuring Sarah Ssali and Sreytouch Vong on YouTube.


Session: World Health Assembly

In May 2018 ReBUILD took part in the official World Health Assembly side session entitled 'Universal health coverage in emergencies – a call to action'.

There's more here on the background to the event itself.

You can also watch the individual presentations on the ReBUILD periscope page (Tim Martineau's is the last one).


Webinar: Health Systems in Situations of Fragility

Held in May 2018, Professor Sophie Witter of Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh and ReBUILD drew on the work of the consortium, the NIHR Research Unit on Health in Fragility, and wider experiences and literature to examine health systems in fragile situations. Presented by the Global Health Institute at the American University of Beirut.
