January 2020 – With the Syria crisis in its ninth year, Lebanon continues to host over an estimated 1.5 million Syrian refugees, most of whom reside in host communities. As personal savings erode and needs outpace available international assistance, over 70% of Syrian refugees in Lebanon now live below the poverty line. Hosting the highest per capita concentration of refugees worldwide has strained the abilities of local communities to provide essential services, and threatens a delicate balance of peace in the country. With GAC’s support, Tearfund is providing basic health services to Syrian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese. Project activities include: (1) providing essential primary health care services, including sexual reproductive health (SRH) services; (2) providing training to health care service providers in essential, quality primary health care services and management of non-communicable disease; and (3) providing supplies of essential medicines to clinics.
