CONTEXTE DE TRAVAIL :
HI’s intervention is part of a consortium developed with Doctors of the World and Action Against Hunger for the project Resilience for All : Promoting Equitable and Inclusive Access to Services for Vulnerable Refugees and Host Communities in Egypt .
HI component aims to contribute to enhance child welfare and protection through improved health governance and the active mobilization of civil society.
In a context marked by poor quality public primary health care services and limited access for refugee and migrants’ population, the project outcome is twofold.
First, the project will aim to ensure that the existing system of primary health care and rehabilitation services is capable of detecting children with disabilities and / or development delays and to offer them quality early intervention through both center-
based and community based response. Second, the project will aim to enhance community environment and the protection offered to children with disabilities by raising awareness about EDEI and supporting effective access of children aged 0-
8 to EDEI within the network of services supported under outcome 1, with a strong involvement from their families.
The project will take place in 6 PHCFs partnering with UNHCR in areas prioritized due to important density of refugee population among vulnerable Egyptian communities.
These areas are located in the governorates of Cairo and Giza (collectively referred to as Greater Cairo). HI will closely collaborate with the Ministry of Health (MoH), in particular with the district and governorate authorities in charge of supervising the PHCFs providing ED.
Furthermore, as part of EI, HI will collaborate with 4 rehabilitation centers run by the Ministry of Social Solidarity (MoSS) and the Ministry of Health (MoH) that are both responsible for specialised rehabilitation care.
HI will collaborate with two organizations serving refugees, migrants and asylum seekers living in Egypt, Refugee Egypt (RE) and Tadamon.
RE has been providing humanitarian assistance to refugees in collaboration with UNHCR through a number of programmes including pre-
school, medical services and early childhood development. Tadamon was first created in 2004 as a network of 55 CBOs and (I)NGOs involved in the refugee response and progressively evolved as an independent NGO providing information and services to refugees and affected host communities through hotline service, community centers and referrals.
