This quantitative analysis looks at the broader impact of conflicts on health and the provision of health services in Liberia and Sri Lanka. It considers whether the processes uncovered in the qualitative analysis are broadly-speaking in line with general trends in the regions considered. This will enable greater light to be shed on other factors that may be linked to the issues considered in the qualitative analysis (e.g. understanding general trends regarding how adolescent girls were impacted by the conflict). Finally the report analyses the financial landscape of the health systems in the two countries in order to ascertain the availability of funds to implement approaches that result from the study.
