Health Care International Medical Corps currently supports 40 primary health care clinics that provide accessible, effective and affordable medical care to Syrian, Palestinian and Iraqi refugees and the vulnerable host population in regions with the highest density of refugees. The focus of the primary health care clinics is keeping people healthy including routine physical examinations, antenatal care, immunizations, referrals, and family planning.
International Medical Corps also operates nine Mobile Medical Units (MMUs), which are dispatched from the health centres to remote areas to provide basic primary health care services to refugees. On average, International Medical Corps-supported clinics provide close to 20,000 consultations per month.
Mental health International Medical Corps has been a leader in providing mental health support to vulnerable Lebanese and refugees since 2006, when we set up child-friendly spaces to provide war-traumatized children with a secure place to play. Following the influx of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, we expanded our mental health services, by training doctors and nurses to diagnose and treat moderate cases of mental illnesses. We also established mobile mental health services in order to increase access to therapy for those in need.
