About this project

Funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), RUHF was one of the first wave of NIHR Global Health Research Units established to lead research in key areas of relevance to global development.

Building on IGHD’s extensive previous work in fragile and conflict-affected settings, RUHF brought together expertise from research clusters in health systems development and psychosocial wellbeing, integration and protection to develop a comprehensive ‘systems for health’ approach to addressing fragility and building resilience.

The Unit’s major collaborative partners were the Global Health Institute, American University of Beirut (AUB), Lebanon, and the College of Medicine & Allied Health Science (COMAHS), Freetown, Sierra Leone.
