As the project aims to continue expanding the health care network in northern Syria and implementing the main recommendations from the world health organization to continue focusing on short-term stability, with the aim of improving health service delivery and building resilience in the medium term, by ensuring access to basic primary health care services, free specialized services, which will increase general equality in access to health care and ensure continuity of care while improving health status.

The project also aims to strengthen infection prevention and control screening within the health care network facilities in accordance with the recommendations of the specialized global task forces in this regard, in addition to building medium-term resilience, by raising the capacity of primary health care centers, enhancing the skills of health workers, and installing a solid mechanism to enhance the integration of services and decentralized coordination. In the long term, the Aleppo network project could serve as a platform to strengthen primary health care systems and expand coverage to achieve the goal of universal health coverage.

Components of the project

The project consists of three main tracks, the first of which is the provision of basic health care services to residents of localities, the second is to build the capacity of contracted service providers, and the third is to manage and monitor the project’s workflow itself.

The network will link and coordinate the operations of 21 facilities with different levels of complexity and capacities, and solve health problems, with the general objectives set to improve access, enhance efficiency within the network and ensure continuity of care, noting that the world health organization provides project coordination, technical support, and capacity building of partners, quality, implementation control and project evaluation for potential expansion.

Availability of facilities around population size was analyzed using the world health organization monitoring system and resources, as well as the rapid health facility assessment launched in 2019 that collected critical elements indicating gaps in services across northern Syria, and this was useful for determining the arrangement of areas, where the coverage is required to be expanded.
