The TWG-FCAS is developing two linked resources to support access to key evidence and recommended reading for the group’s members and others working on health systems in conflict and crisis-affected settings. The objective is to have a complete, categorised and searchable repository of current research and other knowledge resources around health systems in FCAS, supported by two ‘Key Issue Guides’ which will give an accessible overview of issues and challenges for those working in this field, and will highlight recommended reading.
The objective of this initial webinar is to get input and responses from TWG-FCAS members and from others working in this field, as decision-makers, implementers, advocates, donors or researchers, to ensure that the final repository and key issue guides are as complete as possible, and structured in the best way to support evidence-based policy and practice.
Draft versions of the repository and key issue guides will be shared with registered participants, and on this page, ahead of the webinar.
The webinar will start with overview presentations on these draft versions, followed by a facilitated Q+A session.
Questions will include:
- How could the structure, format and content of the resources be made more useful as sources of evidence and learning for policy and practice?
- What other sources of evidence and learning on health systems in FCAS could be included in the repository?
- How could relevant but less accessible resources (e.g. organisational reports or other unpublished material) be included in this repository and support other initiatives, whilst protecting ownership?
- What organisations, programmes or initiatives are working on HSS in FCAS and should be included in the ‘organisations’ section of the repository?
We would like the Q+A session to be an interactive and lively discussion between webinar participants. Please do come prepared to share your feedback and ask questions.
The webinar will end with an outline of the process for further feedback and for submission of suggested additional material, along with the plan for development of the final versions.
We do hope you will join us and help the TWG-FCAS develop this important resource.
