Project Period: 1 April 2020 – 31 March 2021
Budget Spent: 1,200,000 CHF
Funded by the SDC, the project contributed to 4 DDD facilities in Idlib, providing PHC, SRH and MHPSS services
to 63,646 beneficiaries; the majority of whom were displaced people from other areas of Syria.
In addition to the consultation services, the project also included other activities such as health promotion and
awareness raising, distribution of hygiene and maternity kits, and case management services.
The project specifically targeted the most vulnerable individuals in the areas of intervention, e.g. by organising
home-based medical visits to reach out to the most at-risk individuals. This included pregnant women who are
particularly at risk of COVID-19 complications and therefore reluctant to attend DDD clinics.
In total, 50% of healthcare staff in these facilities were women, improving both inclusive services to female
beneficiaries and contributing to the empowerment of women in general in northwest Syria.
