The groups and coalitions which ReBUILD for Resilience works with

Like the ReBUILD programme before it, ReBUILD for Resilience is an active member of working groups and coalitions that share the programme’s objectives; to work actively towards improving health systems in fragile and shock-prone settings. These links will develop as the programme progresses but currently include the following:

Health Systems Global Thematic Working Group on Health Systems in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Settings (TWGFCAS)


TWGFCAS is an active group of almost 1,200 researchers, policymakers, funders and implementers, all working towards the objectives of better creation, sharing and use of new knowledge for better health systems and access to healthcare for all, in these most challenging settings. The group is managed by a steering committee and supported by an expert advisory group. Several ReBUILD for Resilience consortium members make up their number.



UHC2030 Working Group on UHC in Fragile Settings

UHC2030, together with WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme, has convened this group to encourage the development and implementation of health sector policies that affect populations living in fragile settings, and to sustainably improve the quality and safety of available health services. The group brings together experts from key operational agencies and coordinating bodies – as well as researchers like the ReBUILD for Resilience consortium – to explore options for how a more effective and complementary interface might function. Professor Sophie Witter, research co-director of ReBUILD, sits on the group.

The Lancet Commissions

Team members are involved in several Lancet Commissions:

• Syria: health in conflict

• Migration and Health: the health of a world on the move

Gender and COVID-19 working group

This project brings together academics from around the world – including ReBUILD for Resilience members – to conduct real-time gender analysis to identify and document the gendered dynamics of COVID-19 and gaps in preparedness and response. It brings together hundreds of researchers, policy makers and practitioners and is a clearing house for emerging evidence in this area.

"We seek to understand how we can develop stronger and more resilient health systems which deliver both local and global health."
