Application of social network analysis in the assessment of organizational infrastructure for service delivery: A case study from post-conflict northern UgandaOxford University Press, 2017In post-conflict settings, service coverage indices are unlikely to be sustained if health systems are built on weak and unstable inter-organization infrastructures.

A comprehensive framework for human resources for health system development in fragile and post-conflict statesPLoS Medicine, 2011Responding to the global human resource crisis requires systems thinking if a more comprehensive approach to human resource management and development is to be achieved. We present a comprehensive and visible framework for human resource system development.DocumentBioMed Central, 2014In post-conflict settings, severe disruption to health systems invariably leaves populations at high risk of disease and in greater need of health provision than more stable resource-poor countries. The health workforce is often a direct victim of conflict.Document
A basic package of health services for post-conflict countries: Implications for sexual and reproductive health servicesTaylor and Francis Group, 2008Health systems in countries emerging from conflict are often characterised by damaged infrastructure, limited human resources, weak stewardship and a proliferation of non-governmental organisations.
