There are currently no emergency medical facilities in Erbil – an area of Kurdistan absorbing one of the largest number of refugees in the country.
With our partners AdventistHelp, Help Refugees are working to help implement an emergency field unit that can effectively provide high quality, fast and flexible medical services to thousands of internationally displaced peoples in Erbil; a remote and cut-off location with little to emergency care support at all.
Before now, patients within the Erbil region were being forced to relocate to hospitals in distant regions, inflicting unnecessary movement and tearing families at times of crisis. Seeking to fill the gaps left by global governments and international agencies, Help Refugees are working hard to reduce the need for patient transfer by provide critical services and necessary services in close proximately to patients home communities.
Committed to an integrated and locally-led approach, AdventistHelp look to situate their services in conjunction with local primary and secondary healthcare clinics in the region. Working partnerships that can ensure the smooth transferral pathways and dedicated patient support is consistently and effectively provided.
