After the proven success of the first mobile clinic and while it was still in progress, a
second one was launched on 1 May 2016 to provide healthcare services to IDPs in collective
centers and camps in Afrin. The goal of the project was to improve the access to healthcare
services with the intention of contributing to the health system governance capability on a long
term (more than three years) basis.
The objective of this second mobile clinic was framed by the priorities agreed by the
stability response between EU-UN (OCHA – Health Cluster). Coupled with a common approach
to protect the existing health referral network (from primary to secondary healthcare) and to
provide a budget that reflects the support of community services and primary healthcare (PHC)
master course trainings.
Over the course of four months, the mobile clinic was able to provide primary health care
services to 6,322 individuals in the Afrin district of Aleppo.
