Our Lebanon Refugee Response
In Lebanon, International Medical Corps addresses the needs of thousands of Iraqi refugees who have fled into the country seeking shelter, health care and other basic services. We provide primary and secondary health care and psychosocial services to both Iraqi refugees and vulnerable host populations. International Medical Corps also works to raise awareness on gender-based violence (GBV), with a focus on working with men and boys to end violence against women. We also train clinic staff and community health workers to ensure that they are well-equipped to identify, treat, and refer GBV survivors.
Due to the ongoing conflict in Syria, thousands of Syrian refugees have recently crossed the border into Lebanon and require emergency services. Since May 2011, International Medical Corps has been providing primary health care and psychosocial services for Syrian refugees as well as assistance for advanced cases requiring hospitalization. We will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and scale-up services as needed.
