Findings of a Swiss Red Cross learning process with case studies form South Sudan and Haiti

This study is the result of a two-year SRC learning process run by the SRC on the challenges and effective approaches to health work in fragile contexts. The focus is on the interaction between health programmes and their context: How does a fragile context influence healthcare work? Can a health programme help reduce that fragility? The conclusions are based on the results of two case studies in South Sudan and Haiti, together with discussions at the Health in Fragile Contexts conference organized by the SRC, SDC and Medicus Mundi Schweiz health network in August 2016.
