Crisis Overview

In Syria, 16.7 million people urgently need assistance—the highest number since the conflict began 13 years ago. Among them are 7.2 million internally displaced persons (IDPs), including 2 million in camps or informal settlements.

Nearly 50% of those in need are children, and 20% are individuals with disabilities. Regional insecurity and global funding shortfalls have exacerbated humanitarian conditions, particularly in food security, livelihoods, and protection violations.

Critical Health Needs

The health situation in Syria is dire, with 14.9 million people needing primary and secondary healthcare, including 5.1 million IDPs and 2.3 million children under 5. Mental health issues are significant, with 1 in 10 people affected.

Healthcare facilities are struggling, as 40% are partially or non-functional, and there are major gaps in the availability of health workers. Nutritionally, 5.9 million people need assistance, with Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) rising to 4.7% in 2023 and wasting in children under five increasing by 40%.

Funding Shortfall

The 2024 Global Humanitarian Overview calls for $48.28 billion to aid 182.2 million people across 70 countries, with Syria needing $4.1 billion but receiving only $224.5 million (6%) so far.

Due to funding shortages, 112 health facilities in northwest Syria may halt operations by June 2024, with nearly a third already nonfunctional. This shortfall places over one million children at heightened risk of disease outbreaks.

MedGlobal’s 2023 Impact

In 2023, MedGlobal’s impact included delivering 139,867 free primary health care services, 61,130 nutrition services, and 37,385 health and nutrition awareness sessions. They provided 15,616 emergency services, 16,576 maternal health consultations, and supported 141 normal deliveries across five primary healthcare centers (PHCs).

In secondary healthcare, we delivered 12,399 free services, managed 1,653 emergency and trauma cases, performed 1,153 surgeries, and provided 436 intensive care services, supporting 16 hospitals. Additionally, MedGlobal conducted 1,188 dialysis sessions, vaccinated 5,094 people, and trained 230 staff members.
