ReBUILD for Resilience research projects

Responsive Fund round one – COVID-19

Four research projects involving all consortium partners:


  • Understanding health system resilience to respond to COVID-19 in a federalised context: a case study of health workforce management at sub-national level in Nepal
  • Community and health system stressors and coping mechanisms during COVID 19: case study from Myanmar
  • The gendered experience of close to community providers in fragile and shock-prone settings: implications for policy and practice during and post COVID-19
  • Health system resilience amid outbreaks: understanding the politics of sexual and reproductive health service adaptation in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo


"ReBUILD for Resilience brings together partners to share experiences, to discuss our contexts, and to create an appropriate model that helps build resilience in health systems across the country and beyond"
