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 quality healthcare services to up to 22,000 persons. Project activities include: (1) providing basic healthcare services including sexual and reproductive health care; (2) increased access to a referral system and follow-up consultations; (3) providing lifesaving medication; and (4) increasing knowledge of key health practices for women, men, girls and boys.
The expected outcome for this project includes: improved access to quality basic health services for vulnerable women, men, girls and boys.
The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
