Challenge

Safe facilities for both patients and health workers in Syria are scarce. Attacks on health facilities - 101 alone in 2016 - have led to a dearth of operational hospitals and health workers. One out of two public health facilities in Syria is non-operational or partly operational. Avicenna Hospital will be the ONLY Women & Children's hospital and the largest underground hospital in Idlib, that provides a refuge that protects its patients, workers, and doctors delivering life-saving care.

Solution

Avicenna's comprehensive telehealth program will provide physicians and nurses at the Avicenna women and Children's Hospital with the training and tools necessary to provide patients with the care they need. TeleHealth, a cutting-edge technology, will connect Avicenna's medical staff with remote specialized doctors to help train and assist with emergent surgical cases, technical support, daily medical consultations, and weekly education. This allows for capacity building in Idlib, Syria.

Long-Term Impact

The telehealth platform is a critical component in creating a sustainable solution to the lack of medical support in Syria. By providing the 350 doctors, nurses and administrative staff with mentoring and technical support, the program will create a foundation to develop Avicenna staff for the longer term. The program will also help to encourage the many of the doctors and specialists who were forced to flee regime-controlled areas to return and serve the hospital's overall mission to show that
