(p.98) 6 Collateral Damage: War, Infrastructure, and Public Health
War and the Health of Nations
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the impact of conflict-related damage to health-related and general infrastructure on key public health outputs. It explains that general and health care infrastructure are integral to the provision of adequate health care, and that violent conflict has a direct and negative effect on all aspects of infrastructure, which in turn can lead to a decline in health outputs. The chapter also suggests that the impact of war on societal well-being is mediated to a great degree by states' ability to recover from conflict and the pace of post-conflict reconstruction.

Keywords:   public health outputs, general infrastructure, health care infrastructure, health care, societal well-being, post-conflict reconstruction
