GOAL, The Rand Corporation, University College London, and The Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, sponsored by Irish Aid, are hosting FROM CRISIS TO RESILIENCE, a webinar series that aims to explore the emerging lessons and best practices for transforming crisis to resilience.

Learning and investing in resilience at various stages, and within critical socio-economic systems, is crucial to ensuring the preservation of gains in the well-being and development of people in the face of shocks, and to shift from humanitarian assistance towards long-term resilient development.

This 90-minute webinar will address the main challenges and discuss innovative approaches to localisation for resilient health systems in fragile and conflict-affected contexts. Panelists will aim to answer the following questions:

  • What does health resilience mean? What are some political/social determinants of health?
  • What learning is emerging in relation to continuity and improvement of healthcare during adversity and building capacity to respond to health emergencies?
  • What are the main challenges?
  • What approaches or innovations in systems thinking can be applied to build resilient health systems?

This webinar is free and open to all.
