The Australian Centre for International and Tropical Health (ACITH) is a teaching and research collaboration between The University of Queensland’s Faculty of Health Sciences (particularly the School of Population Health), and the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR). 

ACITH aims to improve the health of populations in Australia and internationally through excellence in education, research and service by the provision of first-class coursework and research degree courses in international and tropical public health for Australian students, students from tropical developing countries and other students with a strong interest in these areas. Other objectives include the development of superior facilities for research and research training, to support international and Australian public health programs and the transfer of knowledge and technology to tropical developing countries, and to make special provision for the training of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. The maintenance and further development of strong collaborative links with an extensive number of national and international institutions is also a key objective.

This six-country case study of severely disrupted environments – Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Palestine, and Somalia – examines what happens in terms of health service provision where the state is unable or unwilling to provide.
