DESCRIPTION

This working paper addresses the following questions. What do we know about the impact of war on health and health systems? What have we learned about effective strategies to help states meet the health needs of their populations in the aftermath of conflict? What is the appropriate  foundation for a policy on post-conflict health recovery? If health reconstruction is to be a priority, what are adjustments needed in U.S. foreign policy?
