Description and results


December 2016 - The humanitarian situation in Iraq continues to deteriorate. The violence between armed groups and government forces has displaced over 3 million people from their homes. The capacity of the Government to respond to the basic needs of its citizens has been overwhelmed. While Daesh has lost considerable territory in 2016, it is expected that humanitarian needs will remain significant in the coming years. More people will be displaced by the conflict, while many will remain displaced in camps and host communities. However, there will also be growing numbers of people returning to areas no longer under the control of Daesh who will also need assistance to help restart their lives. With GAC’s support, the project is providing up to 61,000 conflict-affected people per year with comprehensive primary healthcare, including sexual and reproductive health care, mental health care, health promotion, essential medication, and emergency referral systems through static and mobile clinics. The project is also building capacity of national health actors to provide health services to Iraqis in a time of crisis though training and coaching for medical and paramedical staff, the provision of medical inputs, and the monitoring of and provision of feedback on national partners’ activities.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved access to comprehensive primary healthcare services, including sexual and reproductive health, and (2) strengthened local capacity of the health actors to face health-related crises. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crisis or that are food insecure.
