The health systems of countries in crisis are often weak and unable to address the increased health needs of the population. Moreover, health workers in these countries often have limited capacity to analyse the major features and weaknesses of the health system. Emergency appeals and response interventions are often prepared based on inadequate evidence. This poses major challenges to both Governments and the international community.

This course aims to address these constraints as part of a broader learning programme to improve the analytical and planning capacity of Ministries of Health and agencies in countries in chronic crisis.

The overall objective of the programme is to strengthen health professionals’ ability to analyse health systems in countries in crisis; develop adequate response and recovery strategies; and plan and implement effective interventions.
