Disability-inclusive health systems research in fragile and shock-prone settings

This ReBUILD for Resilience webinar looked at how we might deliver disability-inclusive health systems research in fragile and shock-prone settings.

The speakers were:

• Kyu Kyu Than (Chair) – Burnet Institute Myanmar
• Joanna Raven – Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, UK
Hannah Kuper – London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK
Nukhba Zia – Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, USA
• Aicha Benyaich – International Committee of the Red Cross, Lebanon
• Deepak Raj Sapkota – Karuna Foundation, Nepal
Laura Dean – Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, UK
Janet Price – Activist, scholar, DadaFest, honorary research fellow at LSTM

The panel discussion was structured around the following three questions:

  • Why is work on disability and health systems so often siloed?
  • Are there any particular challenges in working on disabilities in fragile and shock prone settings?
  • What would you like a consortium like us to do differently and what is the best practice that we should be following?
