Commitment to Action

Building Community: Resilience in the Middle East

Commitment by

International Medical Corps

In 2014, International Medical Corps committed to expand public health services and build the capacity of local organizations to meet the needs of refugee and host communities in the four largest refugee-recipient nations of the Syrian refugee crisis: Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Turkey. Over the next two years, International Medical Corps and partners will benefit 100,000 people and will provide direct services to meet the most immediate needs, especially in camps, in primary healthcare, nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene, and mental health. Additionally, teams will strengthen the capacity of partner staff so they can respond flexibly and rapidly to changes triggered by the crisis. This will include training frontline healthcare workers in emergency and public healthcare, and helping partners access the human, material and financial resources they need to respond to a variety of challenges.
