DiSoCo consists of seven work packages each addressing a different objective.
Phase I (2020)
1. Identify existing policy process and models that could be made applicable to our various protracted displacement contexts.
2. Identify key neglected chronic mental health conditions (and comorbid physical conditions) associated with displacement, violence, and gendered conflict.
Phase II (2021-22)
3. Map types and locations of healthcare providers accessed by displaced people.
4. Document how gender and other factors influence displaced people’s health-seeking behaviours.
5. Shape healthcare systems to be more responsive to the needs of displaced people.
Phase III (2023)
6. Analyse how access to healthcare for displaced people is affected by local, national, regional, and global health systems and refugee policy.
7. Establish how to support plural healthcare systems to encompass diagnosis and treatment of neglected conditions associated with protracted displacement, conflict, and gendered violence.
