Emergency Health in Bekaa (Lebanon)


Titre : Emergency Health in Bekaa (Lebanon)

Pays /Région : Liban
Localisation : Bekaa Valley,

Date : September 2020 – March 2022

Syrian refugees, along with vulnerable Lebanese, lack access to primary healthcare. Mental health disorders (including post-traumatic stress disorder), women’s health, and chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease are significant issues within refugee camps.

There is a lack of access to health services and education surrounding maternal health. COVID-19, along with the Beirut explosion, has magnified Lebanon’s economic and political challenges, making it increasingly difficult to operate. There has also been an increasing number of attempts to target Syrian refugees that expose refugee families to a greater risk of exploitation (including child labour) and poverty.

This project will equip and staff community development centers (clinics) to better serve Syrian refugees. Over 200 health care providers will be trained in health subjects such as disease management, medical guidelines, pharmacy management, and health education. Primary care will be provided to refugees focusing on maternal and pediatric health, health nutrition, and chronic illnesses.

Bénéficiaires  : Through Tearfund, you will improve health care access and service for 244,000 people – focusing on providing essential health services to the most vulnerable. You will provide 55,000 women with pre- and postnatal care and well as expand vaccination efforts to 19,200 children during the project.

Budget : $4,500,000
