Syrian Research Group (SyRG)

The Syria Research Group (SyRG) is a team of primarily Syrian health system researchers based at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and the National University of Singapore Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health (SSHSPH).

Founded in 2020 by Yazan Douedari, Mervat Alhaffar, and Natasha Howard.

SyRG focuses on rigorous interdisciplinary health policy and systems research within Syria. This may expand as we grow to related projects within the region and among Syrian refugee and diaspora communities.

We rely on strong networks of Syrian researchers, health professionals, and volunteers inside and outside Syria. Though many of them cannot be named, we are indebted to them for their efforts and interest.
