Description and results


January 2020 – The ongoing crisis in Syria continues to be a driver of displacement and humanitarian needs throughout the country. Over 9 years into the conflict, an estimate 11 million people remain in need of humanitarian assistance, of which 5 million people are facing acute humanitarian needs, and millions remain displaced internally and throughout the region. Years of active conflict and displacement have exacerbated protection risks and increased vulnerability for millions. Humanitarian access to those most in need remains a significant challenge. With GAC’s support, this project works to provide emergency health, nutrition and protection services to up to 560,000 persons. Project activities include: (1) provision of sexual and reproductive health (SRHR) services, including modern methods of contraception; (2) provision of services to survivors or persons at risk of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV); (3) provision of health services to pregnant women and severely malnourished children; (4) training healthcare providers in the delivery of SRHR services.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased use of gender-responsive assistance on essential health and nutrition services by vulnerable people affected by the protracted crisis, especially women and adolescent girls; and (2) increased use of gender-responsive assistance on protection by vulnerable people affected by the protracted crisis, especially women and adolescent girls. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
