Healthcare in Conflict Settings

The focus of the WISH Healthcare in Conflict Settings forum and the report produced by the forum is on healthcare for conflict affected populations. The central question is about how to achieve universal healthcare provision for such populations. Key evidence-based strategies are outlined in the report which includes a framework of principles to guide health action in conflicts. Innovative solutions are needed to tackle key constraints- these may be new technologies, new forms of data gathering and analysis, and new forms of organizational working. It may also be the application of existing technologies and approaches in new ways in the special circumstances of armed conflict.
