Title:
Health in the service of state-building in fragile and conflict affected contexts: an additional challenge in the medical-humanitarian environment
Authors:
Philips, Mit; Derderian, Katharine
Journal:
Conflict and Health
Abstract:
Global health policy and development aid trends also affect humanitarian health work. Reconstruction, rehabilitation and development initiatives start increasingly earlier after crisis, unleashing tensions between development and humanitarian paradigms. Recently, development aid shows specific interest in contexts affected by conflict and fragility, with increasing expectations for health interventions to demonstrate transformative potential, including towards more resilient health systems as a contribution to state-building agendas.
