AAHCI MENA Webinar | Delivery of Health Services in Fragile and Conflict-ridden Settings

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is a diverse part of the World with a wide range of and continuously shifting socioeconomic and geopolitical complexities. At the same time, many countries in the MENA region are conflict-ridden, and the region has been frequently characterized as an epicenter for fragility and humanitarian crises.

Health systems, and in particular their delivery component, must continue to provide healthcare services in challenging circumstances such as what many countries in the MENA region endure. This necessitates re-configuring healthcare delivery, molding standard operating procedures into an innovative, flexible, unplanned, and less-than-ideal system.

This webinar provides context to healthcare delivery in such settings, focusing on approaches and experiences in the MENA region.
