Understanding health system resilience in conflict and crisis affected settingsFriday, 28 Oct 2016
Join ReBUILD for an evidence based multimedia reflection on what is different about health systems resilience in conflict & crisis-affected settings
Thursday 17th November 2pm – 3.30pm
Ballroom C, Vncouver Convention Centre
Reflections on health systems research and policy experience in conflict and crisis affected settings, with video bringing real experiences of households and health workers, and audience contributions.
Hear about the perspectives of poor families and health workers in four countries, on the emergence of the post conflict and crisis health systems. How have shocks been absorbed in both households and health facilities over prolonged periods of insecurity? Have gains been made in their aftermath?
How has the ‘life history’ method helped understand how poverty and health intersected to shape households’ and health workers’ experiences of the health system before, during and after conflict and crisis.
Hear how conflict and crisis have shaped health system challenges during the transition to peace and stability, and how policy experimentation led by international actors can both offer opportunities for health system strengthening but also challenge state capacity to sustain gains.
