5 Results for Contextual Factors

5.5 Security of healthcare workers

5.5.3 Recommendations for future research

There needs to be more research on how healthcare worker security influences the effectiveness of public health interventions in humanitarian crises.
High quality comparative studies are needed to inform how security influences health interventions and outcomes, in particular comparing crises of varying security levels, crises in urban vs. rural settings, and crises with international vs. purely local or domestic health assistance.
Further evidence is needed on the impact on public health interventions of: (i) increased risks posed by integrated UN missions, (ii) using foreign over local healthcare workers, (iii) risk factors associated with security threats to healthcare workers, (iv) religious context on security, (v) the impact of end-user perception on security.
