Research needs and challenges for health systems strengthening in fragile and conflict-affected states
hsg - Health Systems Global "What areas of health systems research in fragile and conflict affected states require particular attention for further enquiry and investment? And what are the challenges that need to be addressed for effective health systems research in these settings?
With fragile and conflict-affected states (FCAS) lagging markedly behind in meeting international health goals, these are really important questions to answer. Donors and implementers are increasingly focusing on trying to address the health challenges in fragile settings. Health systems strengthening is often an important component of their activities, and good evidence to inform such health systems policy and practice is crucial." (Photo: Simon Berry/flickr)
