Case study 'Providing primary health care and protection for refugees'

The main aim of the project, which was implemented in 2015, was to deliver urgent medical assistance to the large groups of refugees from the Middle East and Africa that are transiting Serbia on their way to the European Union, and are stopping for no more than 2-3 days in the Serbia-Hungary, Serbia-Croatia and Serbia-Bulgaria border area. According to IDC’s first-hand experience in the field, and the conclusions of the daily communication with the Working Group on the Problems of Immigrants and the State Secretary, from a humanitarian perspective there was a clear need for medical support, medicines and sanitary supplies. Support for children, underage youths (some of them unaccompanied) and women was one of the highest priorities.

Excellent work was done within the project thanks to the support of  the group of Spanish donors (Farmaceuticos Mundi, Generalitat Valenciana, Xunta Galicia, Fons Catal, AEXID), Schueler Helfen Leben, Arbeiter Samariter Bund Hessen and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany.
