Building back better - what part should gender play in reconstructing post-conflict health systems?
To help explore how gender interacts with efforts to support the health system we put together Building Back Better – a new online resource on post-conflict health system reconstruction in Mozambique, Northern Uganda, Timor Leste and Sierra Leone. This webinar was an opportunity to discuss the implications of reconstruction in these countries and for other settings. The webinar was co-sponsored by the Thematic Working Group (TWG) on Health Systems in Fragile and Post-Conflict settings. It is part of the month of gender events that Health Systems Global hosted in the run up to International Women’s Day on 8 March 2016.
