Syria Public Health Network calls for stronger evidence to guide interventions for displaced Syrians
As a major international conference opens in London today, the Syria Public Health Network has produced a briefing outlining the scope and scale of the health challenges arising from the Syria crisis and key policy priorities in the coming months and years. The briefing draws together findings across a series of events that the Network has held over the past 10 months, and a comment piece focusing on mental health needs that was published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine this month (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
This work has been covered in a press release issued by the University of Cambridge today, which is available here.
