Delivering Health Services in Areas of Unstable Governance and Conflict


Dr. Paul Wise, CHP/PCOR core faculty member, leads a discussion to focus on the urgent need to develop new technology and delivery strategies for the provision of critical health services in areas of poor governance and political instability. Despite the large portion of preventable deaths occurring in complex political environments, current NGO and academic global health programs remain largely engaged in areas of relative political stability. Innovative technologies that respond to the special conditions inherent in unstable areas are desperately needed. In addition, collaborations between global health physicians, political scientists and global security experts will best ensure that more effective strategies for service provision will be created and successfully implemented in the real world.
