TEHRAN, 18 October 2019- “Very recently during the United Nations General Assembly and in Astana last year, we came together to reaffirm that primary health care is the foundation for achieving universal health coverage and the health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In a discussion today on strengthening primary health care in the Eastern Mediterranean Region we covered four key areas:
This Quarterly Mixed Migration Update (QMMU) covers the Middle East region (ME). The core countries of focus for this region are Iraq, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, and Turkey. Depending on the quarterly trends and migrationrelated updates, more attention may be given to some countries over the rest.
• As the offensive along the Turkey/Syria border enters its third day, the original planning figure of 100,000 affected people (scenario 3 in the inter-agency contingency plan) has been surpassed. The geographical area affected has also exceeded the initial plan. UNICEF and UN agencies are now preparing for scenario 4, which is for potentially 400,000 people being affected.
What is it like for a young girl growing up in the midst of the Syria crisis?
Such is the question the interviewer addressed to 17-year-old Layali, who was a mere 11 years old when she fled her hometown in Qamishli, northern Syria, to take refuge in Iraq. Outside the steel-panelled caravan where the interview took place, the Domiz 1 camp teemed with life. Children played football, soft music echoed from a nearby arts and crafts class, and nails were being hammered at a construction site across the road.
The impact of almost nine years of crisis continues to negatively affect people in Syria. There are an estimated 11.1 million people in need across the country, of whom 4.7 million are in areas of acute need. Although this represents a small decrease compared to the level of need reflected in the 2019 Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO), the humanitarian consequences of the crisis continue to generate negative impacts at similar levels to previous years.
3.3 million Syrian refugees and host community members assisted in total in August 2019.
• WFP started to extend its support to refugees of other nationalities in some of the countries responding to the regional Syria refugee crisis.
• In Egypt, WFP targeted refugees of seven different nationalities to be assisted with e-vouchers as part of the “One Refugee Policy”, while in Jordan and Lebanon non-Syrian refugees received unrestricted cash assistance redeemable at ATMs, contracted shops or both, and cash transfers respectively.
The Global Humanitarian Overview published on 4 December 2018 announced funding requirements of $21.9 billion for 21 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP) and the Venezuela Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan. By the end of September 2019, requirements had reached $26.75 billion. The change in requirements since last month is mainly due to an increase in requirements for Mozambique. As at the end of August, 148.7 million people are estimated to be in need in 58 countries. The plans aim to collectively provide aid to 109 million people.
