Strengthening health systems in fragile contexts

World Vision, in collaboration with Action for Global Health, led a group of UK Civil Service Organisations (CSOs) to discuss strategies on health systems strengthening (HSS) of the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) in fragile and conflict affected settings (FCAS).

The policy brief sets out the rationale for and challenges of HSS in FCAS, together with evidence of what works and key recommendations for the FCDO in the delivery of its existing commitments.

The briefing makes a series of recommendations based on the available evidence, including that priority is given to building resilient, adaptive, gender-sensitive health systems in FCAS. This approach would benefit from longer-term funding cycles.
