About Conflict Health
Conflict Health (originally ‘War and Health’) is a blog on the protection of health workers and the health of people from persecution, violence, and armed conflict. It strives to be a comprehensive resource for researchers, policymakers, and practitioners on questions relating to armed conflict, public health, health security, and health diplomacy:
- When do armies, paramilitaries, and insurgents use, exploit, build, and destroy health systems and the health of populations?
- How does air power disrupt health systems?
- When do pandemics threaten international security?
- How do conventional battles affect vaccination programs?
- How do ethnic conflicts shape health systems?
Conflict Health is read by experts, policymakers, journalists, and academics in the international relations, defense, and global health communities. It’s posts have been mentioned on Harper’s, Wired, The Economist, Time, The Guardian, The American Prospect, and other sites.
