Description and results


September 2016 – The Syria Crisis has undermined security and stability in the Middle East and has resulted in unprecedented humanitarian needs. Now in its sixth year, the conflict in Syria has led to the worst displacement crisis in the world. Millions of internally displaced persons (IDPs), refugees, stateless persons and asylum seekers in Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt and Turkey are vulnerable to violence, food and income insecurity, health risks, and sexual and gender-based violence. Canada is helping to reduce the vulnerability of millions of crisis-affected people, especially women and children, through a broad spectrum of humanitarian assistance activities across Syria and in refugee hosting countries. GAC’s multi-year humanitarian support to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in Jordan and Lebanon is contributing to meeting the needs of vulnerable women and girls, particularly related to reproductive health and sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV).

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved reproductive health and use of contraceptives, including long-acting reversible contraceptive methods in Jordan, among Syrian refugees, Jordanian host communities, and Lebanese tented settlement communities; (2) improved capacity of the Jordanian Ministry of Health (MoH); (3) establishment of a dedicated training centre in Za’atari camp to advise the MoH and other service providers on GBV protocols; (4) establishment of a national clinical management of rape protocol within the Jordanian MoH and among service providers; (5) improved will to end forced marriage in Lebanon, and the empowerment of youth, family and community members; and (6) improved capacity of tented settlement communities in Lebanon to promote safe motherhood. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated, and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or that are food insecure.
