The Building Back Better research initiative was undertaken by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) working group on gender, the ReBUILD Consortium, and Research in Gender and Ethics: Building stronger health systems (RinGs).
It explores whether international efforts to rebuild health systems in post-conflict countries address gender equity concerns. This research was conducted by Val Percival (Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University), Tammy MacLean (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine), Sally Theobald and Esther Richards (both Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine).
The Uganda, Zimbabwe, Cambodia and Sierra Leone and Timor Leste case studies on this site were written by Sarah Hyde based on research by Sarah Ssali (College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Makerere University), Justine Namakula (School of Public Health, Makerere University), Stephen Buzuzi (Biomedical Research and Training Institute) Sreytouch Vong, Bandeth Ros, and Haja Wurie (College of Medicine and Health Science, University of Sierra Leone). Sarah Hyde also wrote the briefs on health care reform after conflict and humanitarian responses.
The research was partly funded through UKAID and their support for the ReBUILD Consortium and the RinGs project.
