Bénéficiaires
The target beneficiaries are internally displaced persons (IDPs) that lack basic amenities include health.Those worst hit and will be prioritized include ; Pregnant and lactating women, women of childbearing age and children under five years of age who are are particularly vulnerable due to their social disadvantage and fragility to natural shocks. These vulnerable group are further weakened by inadequate access to healthcare and less resistant to additional external shocks. In addition, they are particularly vulnerable to infectious diseases and affected most frequently. Because of widespread poverty and deprivation of the target group to health services, which are often offered privately, are not affordable. In addition, information on sexual and reproductive health and rights are often not available for the target group. Rape and gender-based violence are widespread in the IDP settlements. In sum, these factors are reflected in the extremely high maternal and infant mortality rates and underline the need for targeted improvement of maternal and child health as a contribution to higher resilience of the target group.
