Emergency Response for Syrian Refugees – North program
After the outbreak of conflict in Syria in 2011, the numbers of Syrians fleeing the conflict into Lebanon have skyrocketed to almost 1.2 million registered refugees, and many more unregistered.
For those living in rural areas, access to medical care is both physically distant and usually financially out of reach as well. For this reason, RMF partnered with the IMC, and the UNHCR to provide funding for the mobile clinics that RMF has at its disposal. These clinics circulate among various villages in towns that are far from established healthcare services, and they provide free check-ups and free medicine for simple ailments.
The mobile team was composed of a general practitioner and a nurse. This mobile team provided consultation services, acute medications provided by IMC according to the Ministry of Public Health’s (MOPH) essential list of acute medications, and contraceptives to the Syrian refugees. It also ensured proper referral of cases for specialized services.
