Abstract: The current conditions for moving towards a sector wide approach (SWAp) to the health sector was researched in three post-conflict states: Timor Leste, Sierra Leone and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). This study addresses key lessons learned with regards to the desirability and feasibility of SWAps in post-conflict health sector settings; the progress that these three countries have made in putting in place the six major SWAp building blocks; the drivers and barriers to early SWAp development within these countries; and how to enhance SWAp implementation within health sectors that are in transition from humanitarian to development aid.
