About this Research Topic
Current and emerging challenges in humanitarian health such as pandemic preparedness, non-communicable disease prevention and treatment, and gender-sensitive solutions, require new and innovative solutions. This Research Topic seeks to address knowledge gaps in humanitarian health, with an emphasis on conflict and violence settings, and provide opportunities for academic researchers, humanitarian practitioners, and other key partners to share information on successful approaches and lessons learned, to improve health and well-being, but also specifically to strengthen health systems capacities as part of the recovery process, to advance long-term and transformative resilience.
This Research Topic welcomes submissions in the following areas:
• Operational research on priority health issues in humanitarian crises
• Multisectoral approaches for public health crisis responses
• Capacity strengthening for health in humanitarian/conflict settings
• Implementation approaches for long-term health systems recovery
• Local creativity as drivers for resilience in conflict settings
• Challenges in treatment and prevention of non-communicable diseases in humanitarian crises/conflict settings
• Descriptions of or studies on reporting and communication of health needs and priorities between humanitarian, host country, and/or other partners
• Health risk communication and community engagement in conflict settings
• Best practices for designing and implementing response packages for infectious disease outbreaks or pandemic preparedness and response in humanitarian/conflict settings
Other topics will be considered provided they fit the overall theme of the Research Topic.
