Introduction: ReBUILD’s research on health financing in conflict-affected & post-conflict settings

ReBUILD’s research started with an overview literature review on health financing in post-conflict states, which fed into the development of research projects to fill some identified gaps, including:

  • The changes in health financing policies in four countries and how they affected household access and expenditure
  • A four-country study on health worker incentives post-conflict
  • Social network analysis of aid actors in northern Uganda
  • A review of contracting mechanisms in Cambodia
  • A review of purchasing mechanisms in Zimbabwe
  • A literature review and expert consultation on health financing and gender

During ReBUILD’s extension phase additional projects looked at:

  • Performance-based financing (PBF) in fragile and conflict-affected settings, and how contextual factors influence adoption, adaption, implementation and integration of PBF, and how PBF programmes could be improved and ultimately strengthen health systems in FCAS.
  • Demographic and distributional impacts of conflicts and implications for health systems. Building on the phase 1 research on health financing, this project aims to understand the implications of conflict-related demographic change for health financing and social protection policies intended to ensure access to healthcare without impoverishing effects.
