- DocumentDepartment for International Development, UK, 2017New research by CRISE reveals important gaps and inconsistencies in post-conflict reconstruction policies on Horizontal Inequalities. Based on in-depth studies of eight diverse post-conflict countries and four cross-cutting thematic studies, the findings provide a framework that helps to explain sources of success, and failure, and points to policy requirements and constraints in this area.DocumentLondon School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, 2007This paper was commissioned by the Health Systems Knowledge Network of the WHO Commission on the Social Determinants of Health in response to their conclusion that a lack of data from conflict-affected fragile states made it difficult to delineate pragmatic ways of creating better social conditions for health for vulnerable populations.The key questions we focused on were as follows:DocumentOECD DAC Guidelines and Reference Series, 20121.5 billion people live in countries affected by repeated cycles of violence and insecurity.

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. The objective of this study was to identify and examine the organization-level infrastructure that supports the provision of selected health services in post-conflict northern Uganda.OrganisationDocumentWiley Online Library, 2015Received wisdom holds that the provision of vital public services necessarily improves the legitimacy of a fragile or conflict-affected state. In practice, however, the relationship between a state's performance in delivering services and its degree of legitimacy is nonlinear.DocumentOverseas Development Institute, 2012Places affected by fragility and conflict perform consistently worse against a range of development indicators compared to their more stable counterparts. Yet, it is in these contexts that data are most limited, that evidence is of the poorest quality, and that programming and policy making tend to be least informed.DocumentElsevier, 2017Improving financial access to services is an essential part of extending universal health coverage in low resource settings.

In Cambodia, high out of pocket spending and low levels of utilisation have impeded the expansion of coverage and improvement in health outcomes.DocumentBritish Medical Journal, 2017Conflict and fragility are increasing in many areas of the world. This context has been referred to as the ‘new normal’ and affects a billion people. Fragile and conflict-affected states have the worst health indicators and the weakest health systems. This presents a major challenge to achieving universal health coverage.
