How does conflict damage national health?

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) presents an excellent animation especially commissioned in 2018 by MSF to look at this topic.

Further MSF videos within the PowerPoint presentation explain the difficulties and consequences of treating epidemics in conflict zones.

Here, we compare two case studies 100 years apart - Spanish Flu in 1918 and Ebola in 2014-16 and 2018-19. This resource is particularly helpful for students of KS3 History.
