International Health Regulations (IHR) Strengthening project

UK - Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC)

The DHSC ODA-funded International Health Regulations Strengthening Project (IHR-S) provides peer to peer technical expertise through the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) to support public health partners to prepare, prevent, detect and respond to global health threats and increase compliance with the WHO International Health Regulations (IHR 2005). Compliance with IHR (2005) is fundamental as infectious disease outbreaks are expected to become more frequent in the future and preparedness is necessary to reduce health threats both internationally and within the UK. Lack of compliance to meet IHR (2005) requirements places countries under greater risk from disease outbreaks and other health emergencies, and has potentially wider implications on a global scale, as evidenced by the spread of Covid-19. IHR (2005) includes 13 technical areas such as surveillance, laboratories and points of entry as focal points to support countries to prevent, detect and respond to health threats.

The effectiveness, mechanisms of change, and acceptability of Family Focused PsychoSocial Support (FFPSS) for at-risk adolescents in Lebanon

DEPARTMENT FOR BUSINESS, ENERGY & INDUSTRIAL STRATEGY

This mixed-method study is an international collaboration between the American University of Beirut and War Child Holland, supported by project partners the Danish Refugee Council and Terre des Hommes Italy, the Ministry of Public Health Lebanon, UNICEF, and international expertise from University College Dublin, the Boston College School of Social Work, and Queen's University Belfast. The study aims to develop and test a culturally and contextually sensitive Systemic Family Intervention Module for at-risk adolescents that can be run alongside existing focused psychosocial programmes in Lebanon. Focused psychosocial support aims to promote wellbeing and resilience and to reduce mental ill-health in young people at risk of child protection violations, including gender-based violence, child marriage, and child labour. One in five children globally live in conflict affected areas, and these children experience a high incidence of mental disorders. The global burden of disease for mental disorders is 5 times higher in conflict-affected areas than the global average. Young people are affected not only by the violence, loss, and insecurity of war, but the systemic impact on their living conditions, access to school and health care, structural discrimination, and gender-based violence, as well as their caregivers trauma, stress, and compromised parenting capacity. The devastating impact of war, conflict, and extreme adversity on the mental health and wellbeing of children and adolescents has been extensively researched, but with continuing challenges in improving the quality and scope of interventions for these populations. The treatment gap in low resourced settings is as high as 90%, with major barriers of limited infrastructure and trained specialists. As a strategy to close this gap, psychosocial support interventions as part of a stepped care coordinated approach have been developed and widely implemented. There is a small but growing evidence base for psychosocial interventions in conflict and humanitarian emergencies, however adolescent mental health and family-based interventions are drastically under-researched and under-resourced. Nurturing family environments are essential for healthy child development, and parenting and systemic family interventions in other populations and country settings show strong effectiveness for both mental health and protection outcomes. This study therefore aims to develop and evaluate a Family Systemic Intervention Module to use alongside UNICEF Lebanon's focused psychosocial support programme, to enhance current humanitarian programming and addressing a significant weakness of the current evidence base for at-risk adolescents and their families in conflict-affected contexts. Findings will inform the Mental Health System Reform in Lebanon led by the National Mental Health Programme of the Ministry of Public Health. Lebanon is a middle-income country, home to an estimated 1.5 million refugees in a population of around 5.9 million. The majority of refugees come from Syria, as well as almost half a million Palestinian refugees. Almost 60% of Syrian refugees are living in extreme poverty, unable to meet basic survival needs, whilst 30% of Lebanese host communities also live below the poverty line. The many social and economic pressures facing these populations increases the risk of child protection issues, through sexual and gender-based violence, domestic violence, child marriage, child labour and recruitment intro armed groups. In 2015, a 5-year Mental Health and Substance Use strategy for Lebanon 2015-2020 was launched with the aim of reforming the Mental Health System, and whilst much has been achieved, there remains a gap in the provision of family systemic interventions. Lebanon is therefore an ideal location for this study because it has both large vulnerable populations in need of focused support, as well as political will to integrate learning into the national mental health strategy.

ARUA CoE in Materials, Energy & Nanotechnology Research.

DEPARTMENT FOR BUSINESS, ENERGY & INDUSTRIAL STRATEGY

Under the theme of Energy, Materials Development and Nanotechnology, ARUA CoE-MEN will use materials and nanotechnology to develop energy solutions for Africa, as well as materials development for efficiency and sustainability, and also develop personnel. The main aim is to develop materials and new technologies to benefit Africa, in both infrastructure and human development, to enable global competition. There will be a range of projects around the technological use of materials, from fundamental to devices up to prototype level and application. The projects should help to identify, and later develop, new opportunities in an African context. This is necessary because often solutions from more temperate climates cannot withstand the harsher conditions in Africa (higher temperatures and humidity), and so are not suitable. This will facilitate the development of new opportunities in an African context (e.g. sustainable manufacturing, off-grid energy technologies, improved materials, and materials recycling - obtaining more useful materials, as well as removing waste), developing the people to do it, and to help Africa become more competitive. ARUA CoE-MEN will investigate barriers to upscaling and uptake of sustainable technologies in Africa. As well as improving materials, strategies for creating and encouraging new technological pathways to facilitate transitions to sustainability in emerging water and energy technologies will be explored. Improved energy security will help the economies develop, leading to more stability with jobs, facilite people to become entrepreneurs, and help to improve the welfare and the wealth of citizens in the different countries. Some of projects target efficiency of materials and hence safety, e.g. by improving buildings and infrastructure (recent flood damage in southern Africa has shown that houses need to be more robust). Improved materials could have even larger long-term benefits on the environment, and help to improve other living conditions, e.g. improving water storage efficiency and cleanliness by combatting corrosion. The potential benefit to the African countries is improved development, improved environments and better education, for researchers and more widely, for the public, by outreach. ARUA CoE-MEN will also try to support more part-time higher degree students, who struggle to balance work, family and their research. This is an untapped source of students, and is an opportunity to increase the skills and work more closely with industry, and possibly entrepreneurs. The benefit to the UK is the strengthening of ties with the different African countries involved, and the potential to enter into business relationships for manufacturing in the future. The hub will be at the University of the Witwatersrand, which has a long-term history of running very successful networks and groups in materials science, and also provides world-class equipment and infrastructure to be shared.
