Research for stronger health systems during and after crisis

Health financing in post-conflict settings – a literature review

This literature review was carried out in March-August 2011. The objective was to carry out an analysis of thinking, approaches, themes and findings of recent writing on health financing in post-conflict or fragile health systems. This will inform and serve as a baseline for the work of REBUILD, a research consortium contributing to health systems research in post-conflict areas, with a particular emphasis on health financing and human resources. It is a companion piece to a similar literature review on human resources in post-conflict settings, and to the country situation analyses, which synthesise existing literature on the four focal countries for REBUILD (Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone, northern Uganda and Cambodia).
