Call for Provision of Training on Long Term Subsidized Primary Healthcare Protocol
Established in 1951, IOM -UN Migration agency is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental, and non-governmental partners.
With 174 Member States, a further nine States holding observer status and offices in over 100 countries, IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants. IOM works to help ensure the orderly and humane management of migration, to promote international cooperation on migration issues, to assist in the search for practical solutions to migration problems and to provide humanitarian assistance to migrants in need, including refugees and internally displaced people. The IOM Constitution recognizes the link between migration and economic, social, and cultural development, as well as to the right of freedom of movement. Headquartered in Geneva, IOM’s structure is highly decentralized, enabling the Organization to acquire capacities closer to where the needs are and to effectively deliver an ever- increasing number of diverse projects at the request of its Member States and partners.
B. Project Description:
The current economic crises facing Lebanon has had a crippling effect on the health sector. It has resulted in increased out of pocket expenditure, disrupted supply chain within the healthcare systems and has eroded access to affordable quality healthcare services in an already “cure” driven and “privatized” healthcare system.
In Lebanon, the primary health care (PHC) network is considered the core of the health system with 258 primary health care centers distributed all over the country, focusing on prevention and health maintenance. Only 5% of the public health sector expenditure in Lebanon is allocated to PHC services compared to an average of 33% among 31 low-and middle-income countries as per MOPH reports.
Strengthening and support of the PHC sector is a key step in improving the performance of the health system in Lebanon by lowering the overall health care expenditure while improving population access to health care services. Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) is working in close coordination with different INGOs/NGO to strengthen the PHC system, aiming for equitable access and high quality of service through well trained PHC staff. The PHCs strive to develop strong links within the communities they serve.
IOM in direct coordination with the MOPH, aims to provide migrants and marginalized communities equitable access to health services by working on their integration within the existing supported services. Under the umbrella of MOPH, IOM will work to increase the number of supported PHCs under the MOPH network through subsidized packages of services. This will support access to healthcare for vulnerable communities while ensuring high quality in the services provided as outlined in the protocol named long term primary health care subsidized protocol (LPSP). The LPSP is a national, standardized, system based, comprehensive protocol to be adopted in primary healthcare settings.
Specifically, IOM will support two (2) primary health care centers, by providing subsidized packages of service following the LPSP protocol.
