Attacks on healthcare in conflict (AHCC) is receiving increased attention as a pressing global concern from humanitarian organisations, the media, policymakers, academics, and the public. This study examines the extent to which this increased attention leads to mainstream reporting and understanding of AHCC that is representative of reality by investigating the ways that information and knowledge about the issue is produced. Based on a rapid review of documentation on AHCC since 2011, this is one of the first studies to assess the rigour, validity, and representativeness of mainstream data on AHCC...

The relatively poor health outcomes in Iraq have been attributed to the inability to address the shortfalls in the public health model. Calls for health system reform in Iraqi Kurdistan Region started in 2004; however, few, if any, significant changes have been achieved since then. This research examines the factors impeding public health system reform in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region, as perceived by the health policy makers, through 11 in-depth, unstructured interviews. Participants attributed the delay in reform to 16 impeding factors that can be categorized into 5 major themes: historical, ethical, cultural, political and institutional...

The problem of aggression towards health care staff is global. It negatively impacts on their psychological and physical well-being, and on their performance.

In the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo there are several support programmes for sexual violence survivors, but their impacts are rarely systematically assessed. We investigated the effects for women from two support programmes that include both survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) and others. Specifically, we estimated (1) the effect of SGBV on social exclusion and economic well-being, and (2) the effects of support programmes on social exclusion and economic well-being, as well as differential effects for SGBV survivors and others...

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a chronic but very treatable medical condition. Adhering to the therapy plan is considered one of the biggest challenges for OCD patients, especially when communities are insecure due to armed conflicts and political upheavals. This paper documents the results of using social media platforms (especially Facebook Messenger, which provides free internet access) to manage the symptoms of a young female with chronic OCD. The results suggest that social media can be a potentially effective therapeutic tool, mainly in situations where armed conflicts, displacement and insecurity are present and where more traditional customs and conservative norms are sometimes reinforced as a protective mechanism, particularly for women who may be prevented from following the classic person-to-person consultation protocol...
