This report will highlight the progress and challenges in the health reform as a start, and will illustrate primary health care services in a comprehensive way, and then will indicate the data in detail that is self-explanatory in each Field of operations at the end, and at an Agency-wide level.
All Fields also continue to take innovations in diverse and critical areas to suit Field realities. What is encouraging indeed is that such innovations are often participatory, and are initiated by our frontline health centre staff in collaboration/ consultation with the community. Syria Field office, as mentioned before, undertook simple, yet far reaching adjustments to service delivery that allowed it to maintain health services utilization to levels as high as 70% of pre-crisis levels, a remarkable achievement by any standards of service delivery in conflict. With the number of health centres closed and access to those open marred by violence, Syria Field Office introduced outreach based health points to plug access deficits.
