Evidence based delivery of effective packages of health services in humanitarian, fragile and conflict affected settings
Maternal, and childhood mortality and morbidity rates continue to rise in conflict affected areas. The Canadian Red Cross (CRC) is collaborating with the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC) to implement Advanced Health Partnership (AHP) framework to provide health care to populations directly in war zones and conflict settings, without access to healthcare as a result of conflict. In delivering these services with a focus on providing services to women an, children, there is an opportunity to ensure that delivery of these services is based on best available practices and good quality data for evaluation of these services is generated. Through this internship, I will work with the Global Health Unit of the CRC and collaborate with the ICRC in the implementation of the AHP framework. I will analyze existing frameworks for providing health services design study to evaluate the delivery of AHP pilot project in South Sudan.
