Analyzing Disrupted Health Systems in Countries in Crisis


[TUNISIA] The health systems of countries in crisis are often weak and unable to address the increased health needs of the population. Moreover, health workers in these countries often have limited capacity to analyze the major features and weaknesses of the health system. As a result, emergency appeals and response interventions are often prepared based on inadequate evidence. This poses major challenges to governments and the international community.

This twelve day training will be held May 16–27, 2011 in Hammamet, Tunisia and aims to improve the analytical and planning capacity of ministries of health and agencies in countries in chronic crisis. The overall objective of the program is to strengthen health professionals' ability to analyze health systems in countries in crisis; develop adequate response and recovery strategies; and plan and implement effective interventions.

The deadline for applications is Friday, April 15, 2010. The program is jointly organized by International Rescue Committee, Merlin, and World Health Organization/Health Action in Crises. [adapted from conference website]
