The Education in Crisis Project (part of the Risk and Resilience Program) conducted interviews with Syrian faculty, students and administrators to understand how medical and nursing education are maintained during an active conflict in which there is a lack of health care workers. The main themes will be explored in the forthcoming HHI report entitled, “Window of Hope”: Maintaining Education of Health Care Workers in Syria”, which is scheduled to be released in September 2020. The potential policy implications for humanitarians are discussed in a July 2020 article from the Oxford Middle East Review. The report authors discussed their work at a panel hosted by the Harvard Medical School chapter of Physicians for Human Rights last December.
