NEW PUBLICATION: Report from the consultation on Collaboration for Applied Health Research and Delivery

The Centre for Applied Health Research and Delivery (CAHRD) is an international network that combines individuals, disciplines and organisations based at the Liverpool School of Topical Medicine in the UK. Earlier in the year they held a far reaching consultation in order to shape their work over the next 20 years. It focused on; lung health, maternal and newborn health, Neglected Tropical Diseases, and health systems. One of the aims of the consultation was to find synergies between these different areas.

Work in fragile and conflict affected settings was a prominent theme in the consultation and ReBUILD researchers participated in the dialogue. These conversations have been written up for a new paper in the journal Conflict and Health. The article addresses issues like:

  • Human resources for health from the perspective of IPASC in rural Democratic Republic of Congo
  • The health systems challenges in addressing Neglected Tropical Diseases
  • The role of intersectoral action in strengthening health systems
  • Future directions of health system strengthening in fragile and conflict affected settings
