Research for stronger health systems during and after crisis


The ReBUILD research programme Consortium aim is to deliver new knowledge to inform the development of pro poor health systems in countries recovering from political and social conflict. and identify windows of opportunity in this post-conflict period to catalyse health system strengthening. 

The ReBUILD Consortium seeks to understand these opportunities through building a body of evidence from partner countries at different stages of recovery: from Cambodia and Sierra Leone, many years after the end of conflict, to Northern Uganda and Zimbabwe at earlier stages of the post-conflict or post-crisis period. Affiliate research partners, funded from a ‘Responsive fund’, are carrying out related research in a range of further countries and regions that enables us to explore several additional post-conflict contexts. As well as the work contributing to the existing evidence base on health system strengthening in the partner countries themselves, we are also working to draw appropriate cross-cutting lessons of relevance to other post-conflict settings.
