Whilst ReBUILD's core research has been focused on the countries of our four main research partners, the additional research conducted, some of it by ReBUILD's affiliate research partners, has broadened the range of post-conflict country settings.


Timor Leste

This study - Understanding human resources for health recruitment and deployment in post-conflict settings - builds on ReBUILD’s work on the evolution of human resource management policies and practices for staff recruitment and deployment during and after conflict or crisis. It aims to improve understanding of how both recruitment and deployment policies, processes and practices contribute to an effective health workforce coverage after conflict in Timor Leste, including a gender and equity lens.

Cote d'Ivoire, Nigeria and South Africa

Health Systems Resilience: A Complex Adaptive Systems Analysis is a ReBUILD affiliate research project applying a systems dynamics approach to understand, predict and identify mechanisms that influence the resilience of health systems in contexts of adversity. The research is led by the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, in collaboration with the School of Public Health, University of Western Cape.


Sri Lanka, Gaza and Liberia

Psychosocial support and service provision for adolescent girls in post-conflict settings is a ReBUILD affiliate research project which explores the extent to which services and other responses to mental health and psychosocial stresses in post conflict settings are informed by the context, by gender and by social-cultural norms. It is being led by the Overseas Development Institute.

Liberia is also a focus of a study into using community health workers in fragile and conflict-affected settings.
