Live-streamed panel session 20th October, 12.00 BST: Gender and health systems in post-conflict settings
ReBUILD and RinGs are hosting an event in Liverpool on October 20th from 12pm - 1:30pm BST to launch the Building Back Better report and a new online resource. This meeting will also be an opportunity to find out more about post-conflict health systems reconstruction in Mozambique, Northern Uganda, Timor Leste and Sierra Leone and discuss the implications of reconstruction in these countries for other settings. The new set of resources will be available via the ReBUILD and RinGs websites immediately after the launch event.
The event will be live-streamed via this link (using password 'Gallery') so that you can still follow the presentations and discussions from anywhere in the world.
