Security, Conflict and Peace (SCoPe) network seminar: Is Colombia marching to a post conflict era?

On the 20th March 2019, my Colombian research partners gave a seminar at the Centre for Health Economics, where they presented initial results of qualitative research conducted within our collaborative project War and Peace. The work has involved interviews and focus groups with health professionals, community and health promoters’ trainees of diverse backgrounds including men and women, FARC ex-combatants, victims and stakeholders in Colombia. You can catch up with the recorded presentation and slides through this link: https://www.york.ac.uk/che/news/news-2019/scope-seminar/. 

Large research grant to assess the health consequences of conflict in Colombia

I am the Principal Investigator of an inter-disciplinary research project to assess the consequences of the Colombian conflict and 2016 peace accord on population health, the health system and post-conflict health policy. 

Our two-and-a-half year project entitled War and Peace: the Health and Health System Consequences of Conflict in Colombia has been awarded £0.8 million by the Joint Health Systems Research Initiative (MRC/ESRC/DFID/Wellcome Trust). The project will see York researchers from the Centre for Health Economics and Department of Politics partnering with colleagues from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Universidad de los Andes in Bogota (Dr Oscar Bernal, Escuela de Gobierno, will co-lead the project in Colombia).

You can find more about the project in our CHE press release.
