A better understanding of constraints and the best approaches for health systems strengthening in conflict and post-conflict settings is critical for the achievement of Universal Health Coverage (UHC). Post-conflict states are complex and fluid, often moving in and out of fragile situations. They have been neglected to date in health systems strengthening and research, and are important contexts in which to better understand and build strong and equitable health systems.
This briefing outlines the importance of better understanding health systems in post-conflict settings, and how ReBUILD’s work in this area can contribute towards achieving UHC.
