The Al-Shahaba’a Primary Healthcare Center (PHC) was founded in 2019 as a response to a need assessment conducted in Northern Aleppo. After a wave of refugees came to the Shahaba’a camp community, it became one of the most essential communities to reach with health services. Located in Northern Azaz, which was identified by the health directorate of Syria and Turkey as a gap in primary healthcare services, the PHC reaches a total population of 20,000.
The PHC operates as a simple facility, providing basic services such as general consultations, reproductive healthcare, family planning, community health services, nutrition services, and free medications which fully cover 60% of the needs in the community. If the PHC is not able to properly care for a patient, they are also able to refer them to the nearest higher level of care, which is 14km away.
Additionally, the project aims to serve the most vulnerable populations in the community. Their eight staff members are prepared to provide high-quality care to local women and children, as well as elderly patients.
