Our Objective

R4HC-MENA’s objective is to build research and policy capacity in conflict affected areas, focusing on health, political economy of health, and complex non-communicable diseases such as mental health and cancer, and facilitate more effective translation of research into policy.

Our legacy will be a new, networked community with practice, policy and health systems financing and planning informed by the best available evidence.
