Health

To relieve suffering and save lives in humanitarian emergencies while advancing the well-being and dignity of affected populations. Emergency and disaster reduction in health includes prevention, mitigation, preparedness, early response and rehabilitation.

All SRD health programs operate on a comprehensive, preventative communication of care, ensuring that every patient receives follow-up care and access to comprehensive services that address the patient’s physical and mental health.

SRD offers comprehensive health programs that seek to provide physical and psychological treatment to people affected by conflict. Initially, SRD’s focus was on urgent first aid and trauma through mobile medical points and subsequently established hospitals that provide a variety of services including ambulance and outpatient services. In response to high morbidity and mortality rates due to the lack of quality primary and reproductive health care, the Center for Research and Development has also set up independent and integrated primary and reproductive health clinics and, more recently, an integrated focus on public health through the community and health programs that complement the multi-level healthcare network.

In Addition, SRD supports clinics and hospitals with medicine, medical supplies and operating expenses.
