Women's healthcare workers at a training last year
Dear COHI Family,
We are so excited to announce that we are moving forward with setting up two new women's health workshops for Syrian midwives. These three day workshops train women's healthcare workers on how to effectively respond to the mental and physical effects of gender-based violence (GBV).
In times of war and crisis, rates of violence against women and girls increase - and as a country that has been at war for eight years now, Syria knows this far too well. It is of vital importance to ensure that Syrian healthcare workers know how to treat survivors of GBV. That's why COHI has been working with in-country partners to train midwives in trauma-based care response. And just because the media has turned a blind eye to the suffering in Syria, doesn't mean we will.
Join us in making sure that Syrian women and girls are not forgotten.
