ReBUILD was a multi-partner, multi-country research consortium that began in 2011. It aimed to enable poor people in post-conflict settings to access effective health care while reducing the costs of healthcare to health systems and those who use them.

In phase 2 (2017-2019), this project had four main research areas: performance-based financing; human resources for health; community health workers and demographic and distributional impacts of conflicts and implications for health systems. The countries where research was carried out were Cambodia, Sierra Leone, Uganda and Zimbabwe. New settings for Phase 2 included Timor Leste, Liberia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria and Central African Republic.

QMU's role in this project

As well as providing technical co-direction for the full ReBUILD programme, researchers from the Institute for Global Health and Development at QMU led in the following areas:

Performance-based financing (PBF)

Our research in this area aimed to understand the proliferation of PBF programmes in fragile and conflict-affected states (FCAS), including humanitarian settings, their impacts on political economy and how they have affected health system purchasing. 

Demographic and distributional impacts of conflict and the impact on household vulnerability: generation, gender and disability (GENDIS)

This area of work researched the uneven distribution of demographic change in three conflict-affected countries and the impact on household vulnerability and health care access.

Thematic Working Group on Health Systems in Fragile and Conflict Affected States

Staff at IGHD are heavily involved in the Steering Committee of the Thematic Working Group (TWG) on Health Systems in Fragile and Conflict Affected States (FCAS), one of 10 TWGs of Health Systems Global. The TWG FCAS brings together researchers, policy makers, funders and implementers working in fragile and conflict affected states to achieve better health, equity and well-being by strengthening health policy and systems research in these challenging contexts.
