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).

Lebanon has historically experienced significant outward migration. However, in the past three years, the country has faced a severe economic crisis, resulting in a substantial increase in irregular migration to Europe. Recent research conducted by IOM reveals a noticeable rise in the willingness of individuals to migrate irregularly from Lebanon. The majority of irregular migration movements occur along the North Lebanese coast, particularly near Tripoli, which is Lebanon's most impoverished city.

Over three years after it began, the Syria crisis continues to weigh extremely heavily upon Lebanon. Around a quarter of its population is now made up of refugees, whose needs remain dire even as the resources available to address them appear to be shrinking.

Resource

Since March 2012, several towns and villages in the North, the Bekaa and the South started receiving Lebanese families who fled Syria, against the backdrop of sectarian conflicts. Most of those families left their hometown decades ago and got Syrian citizenship.
