January 2020 – The ongoing crisis in Syria continues to be a driver of displacement and humanitarian needs throughout the country. Over 9 years into the conflict, an estimate 11 million people remain in need of humanitarian assistance, of which 5 million people are facing acute humanitarian needs, and millions remain displaced internally and throughout the region. Years of active conflict and displacement have exacerbated protection risks and increased vulnerability for millions. Humanitarian access to those most in need remains a significant challenge.
With GAC’s support, this project works to provide health, protection, and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) services to up to 57,000 persons. Project activities include: (1) provision of emergency, gender-responsive health care services; (2) provision of emergency nutrition services for pregnant and lactating women, girls and boys; (3) provision of high quality child protection services and gender-based violence (GBV) services for women, men, girls and boys; and (4) provision of gender-responsive water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services for women, men, girls and boys.
The expected outcome for this project include is increased immediate access to essential and lifesaving health, nutrition, WASH and protection services for internally displaced persons (IDPs) and host communities.
The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
