Support to the internally displaced
Since October 2012, Doctors of the World has been working with Syrian nurses and doctors to provide basic healthcare and sexual and reproductive care to Syrians living in various camps and in a village in the Idlib-north region, near the Turkish border.
Doctors of the World also supports Syrian partners by providing aid to 43 health centers and mobile teams in Syria, particularly in the governorates of Idlib, Aleppo and Dera’a. Although extremely scarce in times of war, essential medicine and equipment is provided by 10 local partners, while we continue to support local healthcare providers since the state is no longer funding the country’s health facilities. We are also there to provide emergency supplies based on the conditions on the ground.
Aid to War Victims
Doctors of the World supports post-operative care centres on both sides of the Turkish-Syrian border, in Reyhanlı (Turkey) and Sarmada (Syria). Victims of the clashes who have been seriously injured and have undergone surgery are given follow-up care. With our partners, we work to improve the quality of care by training the staff of these centres to tend for war victims who have been mutilated and traumatized.
