Maintains Kenya and Uganda Health and Nutrition Research Protocol: Health System Shock Responsiveness

Maintains Kenya and Uganda Health and Nutrition Research Protocol: Health System Shock Responsiveness

This Kenya research plan addresses the research question “How can health systems be made climate shock responsive for all?” In order to comprehensively cover this subject, the question has been broken down into 4 themes: (i) health system impacts of, and responses to, climate-related shocks; (ii) early warning, and health and nutrition information; (iii) financing for health system shock responsiveness; and (iv) surge approaches. The research will be explored through a conceptual framework which views health systems as complex and adaptive systems comprising of interconnected building blocks such as water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food security, and social protection, and within this, shock responsiveness is seen as sub-component of systems resilience. The research spans the period 2020-2023 and will take place in Turkana, Marsabit and Wajir counties in Kenya. Authored by Matt Fortnam, Peter Hailey, Teddy Atim, Emily Mbelenga, and Nancy Balfour
