Details:  With some of the worst health indicators and the least adequate health services in the world, providing health care and rebuilding health services in fragile states is a complex undertaking. The new Health and Fragile States Dossier highlights the challenges and approaches to delivering health services in fragile states. The Dossier has been developed by the Health and Fragile States Network, and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) Health and Information Team, and Eldis. It has been funded by the DFID.
