Syria Public Health Network calls for stronger evidence to guide interventions for displaced Syrians
For the 2016 donor conference in London, the Syria Public Health Network produced a briefing outlining the scope and scale of the health challenges arising from the Syria crisis and key policy priorities in the following months and years. The briefing drew together findings across a series of events that the Network has held before the meeting, and a comment piece focusing on mental health needs that was published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine in 2016 (available here - free link).
One of the issues highlighted in the briefing – which has been sent to the British government – is the shortage of evidence to guide interventions for displaced Syrians. The full briefing is available here: Syria health policy brief_London Conf_Final.3rdFebruary2016
