Summary

In partnership with a local organization, Shafak, COHI is working to ensure that the women and children of Syria get the healthcare they need. Through culturally and linguistically literate care, COHI is working with midwives and women's health workers to staff mobile clinics that move throughout Northern Syria - ensuring that rural communities and refugee camps have access to medical attention. Times of conflict too often prevent women and children from receiving care, let's work to change that

Challenge

In times of conflict, access to healthcare always diminishes. Syria, however, is a special case. This decade long war has effectively halted medical services in many parts of the country leading to dire health issues as well concerns over the spread of COVID.

Solution

Through mobile clinics, COHI and Shafak will be able to reach populations of internally displaced peoples and provide them with medical care that meets them where they are. This means literally driving to the camps where they're staying, but it also means employing Syrian doctors and midwives to perform the care - so that these people are able to work with men and women who speak their language, understand their culture, and respect their bodies.

Long-Term Impact

Though it still seems far off, the conflict in Syria will end and when it does there will be a generation of young people who will rise up and work towards repairing their country. We need these young people to not suffer from the long term effects of malnutrition, from PTSD as a result of sexual violence, from breathing problems that come with untreated COVID. So let's make sure we equip them to create a healthy Syria and a healthy future.
