The ReBUILD Consortium was an international health systems research partnership which between 2011 and early 2019 addressed the previously neglected area of health systems research in fragile and conflict-affected settings.
The consortium, led by LSTM and the Institute for International Health and Development at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, aimed to help some of the world's poorest and most vulnerable people access effective health care and reduce health costs burdens. New research, and the support of evidence-based policy and practice, has resulted in an extensive body of high quality, policy-relevant research. Themes include health systems financing, human resources for health, gender and intersectionality, health systems resilienceandaid effectiveness.
Working with national partners in Cambodia, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Liberia, Sri Lanka, Cote d'Ivoire, Nigeria, Gaza, Democratic Republic of Congo, Timor Leste, South Africa, and Central African Republic, the team has also successfully built capacity at individual and organisational levels and helped inform the activities of a wide range of national and international actors.
All of the research outputs, plus summaries and briefing papers covering key areas, can be found on the project website.
