Abstract:

Bridging the gap between political science and public health research is an essential component of understanding the role that civil society actors play in mitigating the public health effects of armed conflict. It would seem intuitive to conclude that armed conflict creates a significant deterioration in the provision of public health services. However, this relationship appears more complex in the case of Lebanon. In Lebanon during periods of armed conflict, public health indicators of infant mortality rates (IMR) and under five mortality rates (U5MR) actually improved instead of deteriorating significantly due to the presence of civil society actors providing health resources of medications, medical supplies and services. This study will examine the role that civil society actors performed in Lebanon in mitigating the effects of armed conflict on public health by aiding in the provision of health resources to populations in conflict zones. This study predominantly analyzes the leadership role that many women’s organizations took within the NGO community to provide public health care for infants and childrenThe protocol for this study involved using research from medical literature searches and field research to collect IMR and U5MR data. To analyze the mechanisms by which civil society actors successfully provided public health services in the absence of a state identity; survey research was conducted. Quantitative analysis was also conducted by analyzing the number of civil society institutions providing public health resources of medications, physician services or medical supplies.
