You can sort for specific ReBUILD gender-related resources by country, resource type and year in our resources section.

Gender analysis has been a core theme running through all ReBUILD’s research, but has also been a focus area of research in its own right. An overview with links to more detailed descriptions is given below. Key outputs are listed below, with hyperlinks. Further materials and more detailed project descriptions are available via the online links given to the ReBUILD website.

A full list of all ReBUILD’s gender-related outputs can be found here.

Research overview and resources:

  • Empirical research on the opportunities and constraints for building gender responsive health systems in post-conflict contexts: ReBUILD’s collaborative work to explore the opportunities and challenges for building gender responsive health systems in post conflict contexts has been developed into the 'Building Back Better' e-resource (online only) - a set of policy briefs, country case studies, academic papers and other materials which outline the particular problems and challenges and some ways forward and opportunities to better address gender in these contexts.


Key peer-reviewed outputs from this work:


 Building Back Better briefing papers:

Much of this learning has recently contributed to a collaboratively produced open access, online learning resource, developed with the European Commission’s DEVCO B4 health team to help improve the considerations of gender in health systems strengthening work.

ReBUILD is also a core partner in the RinGs Initiative - Research in Gender and Ethics: Building stronger health systems to galvanise gender and ethics analysis in health systems research and strengthening. RinGs focuses on: conducting and synthesising research on gender, ethics and health systems; coordinating research projects through a small grants programme; developing a range of outputs and supporting a learning platform to encourage mutual learning and the use of evidence. ReBUILD partnership here ensures that many of the processes and outputs include a focus on fragility. Key outputs include a special issue in Health Policy and Planning on Leaving no one behind: the role of gender analysis in strengthening health systems.
