An event by the Healthcare in Conflict research network.
Unfortunately, this session will be only online on this occasion. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Join us every second Thursday during Lent for a discussion on the latest and most exciting papers and reports from the field of healthcare in conflict. Expand your knowledge in this fast growing and topical area of study. A chance to network with like-minded interdisciplinary academics, students, practitioners and professionals in this field.
Readings for this session:
- Noubani, Aya, Karin Diaconu, Lilian Ghandour, Maria El Koussa, Giulia Loffreda, and Shadi Saleh. “A Community-based System Dynamics Approach for Understanding Factors Affecting Mental Health and Health Seeking Behaviors in Beirut and Beqaa Regions of Lebanon.” Globalization and Health 16, no. 1 (2020): 28.
Available evidence on mental health and psychosocial problems in Lebanon is limited. Recent quantitative data suggests a high prevalence among Syrian refugees and their Lebanese host communities, with significant treatment gaps in both populations. This study aims to determine how Lebanese host and Syrian refugee communities perceive mental health, and identify health seeking behaviors and barriers to health access in two contrasting contexts of fragility.
This is in person only.
