Strengthening health research: What are the insights from conflict-affected settings in the MENA region?
This article is featured in the ORIENT III 2020

Health research in the MENA region struggles at various levels with cultural, financial and technical challenges and has a dearth of multidisciplinary approaches and evidence-based health policies. Such barriers can be mitigated by long-term and contextualised support via international and regional partnerships, enhanced intersectoral communication and political will.
