In Lebanon, health care is expensive and forces many families into debt when a health crisis occurs. The Lebanese Crisis Response Plan indicates that over 2.4 million individuals in Lebanon are in need of health care support, and VASyR ( Vulnerability Assessment of Syrian Refugees ) data shows that 22% of displaced Syrians are not able to access secondary health care.
From March 2016 until April 2018, Salam focused on providing coverage of medical service to over 200 beneficiaries, that otherwise would not have been supported.
In collaboration with international and local actors, the team helped bridge the gap for beneficiaries, providing necessary and often critical procedures for individuals of all ages, gender and nationalities.
Salam continues to focus on prevention through health care awareness sessions and the dissemination of critical information and basic training.
