The aim of this webinar to create a dialogue with experts working in the field on how to do health systems research that better meets the needs of people with disabilities.

Structure of the session

The webinar will include short five-minute presentations from a range of experts on their work on health systems and disability in fragile and shock-prone settings. This will be followed by a panel discussion where we will explore some of the challenges and entry points to doing health systems research that better meets the needs of people with disabilities. It will be structured around the following questions:

  • Why is work on disability and health systems so often siloed?

  • Are there any particular challenges in working on disabilities in fragile and shock-prone settings?

  • What would you like a consortium like ReBUILD for Resilience to do differently and what is the best practice that we should be following?
