Health systems in fragile and conflict-affected states
Healthcare in fragile and conflict-affected states (FCAS) remains a real challenge, with poor performance on many health-related goals. But little evidence exists on appropriate approaches for health systems strengthening in such settings. The Thematic Working Group on Health Systems in Fragile and Conflict Affected States (TWG-FCAS), part of Health Systems Global.
One of the key objectives of the TWG-FCAS is to support the awareness and dissemination of current and new knowledge, and to support its translation into policy and practice. This collection of resources on the Eldis platform and associated Key Issue Guides are supporting these objectives.

This resource has been developed for the TWG-FCAS by the ReBUILD Research Programme, funded by UK Aid from the Department for International Development.
The TWG-FCAS is a working group of Health Systems Global, bringing together researchers, policy-makers, funders and implementers working in fragile and conflict affected states (FCAS), to promote and support the creation, identification and sharing of knowledge, and the translation of this knowledge into policy and practice.
The ReBUILD Research Programme Consortium is an international research partnership whose purpose is to contribute towards improved access of the poor to effective health care and reduced health costs burdens, through the production and uptake of high quality, policy-relevant research on health systems settings affected by conflict and crisis. ReBUILD is funded by UK Aid from the Department for International Development.
