The The International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) launched its project to support primary health care and prenatal care to pregnant displaced Syrian women at risk.  The project targets 150 women of whom 80% are Syrian and 20% are Lebanese.  The project is funded by the OHCR and was launched from the premises of the Saint Paul Medical Centre.  The director of Saint Paul Medical Centre, Dr. Youssef al-Rashkidi, noted that women targeted by the project are essentially pregnant Syrian displaced women who are at health risk during and after pregnancy who will receive all medical tests which will be carried out by specialized doctors.  The director of the programme Linda Chaker Berbari outlined the project details and introduced the project team.  The project which will be implemented within the premises of Saint Paul Medical Centre will provide a walk in clinic for pregnant women for whom medical files will be established cover the pre natal period and until delivery.  The project will also contract a number of local hospitals to admit women beneficiaries during the project duration which will end in September 2013.
