The Health System Strengthen in Northern Syria (R4HSSS) project is an embedded operational research project that studies the experience of health systems in north west and north east Syria. The project is co-led by the Conflict and Health Research Group at King’s College London and the Union of Medical and Relief Organisations (UOSSM). The overall aim of the project is to produce a model on health system strengthening in conflict settings that can be applied to other contexts affected by long-term and complex conflicts. The project does this by investigating four elements of health system adaptation and strengthening; provision of health services, health education and medical training, health governance and financing, and the use of digital solutions in health information system to inform future post conflict systems strengthening.
As part of R4HSSS focus on capacity strengthening for local health workforce, we offer health future leaders in Syria a unique opportunity to study online master at UK universities. These scholarships are awarded to outstanding professionals from Syria to pursue a master’s degree in any subject related to the health system at any UK university.
For this round, the project provides three scholarships to cover tuition fees up to £15,000. During the master terms, you will be expected to develop your capabilities and skills professionally and academically, grow your network, and build lasting positive relationships with leading academic researchers in your field.
If you have ambition, leadership qualities, knowledge of the health sector context in Syria, and proven practical experience working in the health sector in northern Syria, we encourage you to apply during the application time window.
