Working in Fragile Contexts and Building up Resilient Health Systems

Basel, 2 November 2016. "To end preventable child and maternal deaths, create an AIDS-Free Generation, and protect communities against infectious diseases such as Ebola, we need effective, functional health systems that can deliver essential health services to those in need. International health organisations are more and more obliged to work in fragile contexts where the environment is marked by instability, the public structures are weak or quick to collapse and the rule of law is lacking. If we want to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 we have to find better means to strengthen systems for health and to avoid leaving anyone behind. The MMS Symposium will address these challenges by reflecting different experiences and by having a closer look on building resilient systems for health in fragile contexts."
