Improved Healthcare in Syria

By German Red Cross | Corporate Partnerships

The people of Syria have been suffering from a complex crisis and humanitarian emergency for twelve years: the consequences of ongoing clashes and unresolved political conflicts have led to a desolate economic situation and dilapidated civilian infrastructure. Over 15 million people live in extremely difficult conditions and need basic humanitarian aid.

The lives of women and girls are made even more difficult and access to healthcare, protection services and employment opportunities is restricted. The already inadequate healthcare system is further weakened by water and electricity shortages, supply chain disruptions and a severe shortage of medical staff. 35 percent of the 211 existing hospitals and 44 percent of the 1,791 public health services are either not functioning or only partially functioning. In contrast, the population's need for treatment is growing due to the spread of malnutrition, infectious diseases and respiratory illnesses.

The German Red Cross (GRC) aid project aims to increase the capacities of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC) in the event of disasters and emergencies and to strengthen the communities' ability to resist and help themselves. The health sector plays a central and life-saving role in the event of an emergency:

Disaster management
Improved preparation and management of crisis and disaster situations, e.g. through local emergency teams, action plans, provision of relief supplies

Health care in the communities
With a health program for communities, those involved learn how to provide first aid and prevent diseases through health prevention and hygiene promotion:

  • Establishment of health teams, training in first aid, awareness campaigns
  • Empowering women in their communities through an active and leading role in the planning and implementation of program activities
  • Capacity building for volunteers and staff
  • Providing the necessary equipment

Reproductive health

  • Access of vulnerable pregnant women to a health facility
  • Safe delivery of newborns and treatment of medical complications
  • Support from obstetricians

Support for the children's hospital in Aleppo
The SARC children's hospital in Aleppo is the only hospital for children in the region. The services provided there are therefore unique and crucial for the well-being of children - especially if they require special treatment.

  • Deployment of 17 nurses and twelve employees
  • Provision of oxygen cylinders and incubators for the intensive care unit

Cost coverage for three types of treatment for children

  • Cases in the intensive care unit and incubator; support for 100 patients per month
  • Hospitalization of children with acute/chronic illnesses; support for 100 patients per month
  • Surgical interventions; support for 100 patients per month
