Integrating gender into health system strengthening in conflict and crisis-affected settings

There is a growing interest in applying gender frameworks and analysis in health systems research. The #metoo movement and other popular feminist actions have driven greater attention to gender equity. New conflicts and health crises have arisen in various settings prompting humanitarian emergency responses.

This webinar did not seek to make the argument that we should focus on gender in post-conflict health systems. We feel that argument has been settled. Rather we described how the process of focusing on gender has unfolded in different settings and shared a range of tools that interested researchers, policy makers and practitioners could use and adapt to stimulate progress towards gender equity.

The webinar was sponsored by RinGs, the ReBUILD Research Programme Consortium and the Building Back Better project. It was facilitated by Health Systems Global.
