Project webpage:
The Syrian Family Planning Association (SFPA), with the technical assistance of the Italian Association for Women in Development (AIDOS), is launching the Project ”Strengthening the capacity of the Syrian Family Planning Association (SFPA) clinics to serve as health counselling centres (HCC) for women, adolescents and men: a pilot experience in the Halbouni Clinic in Damascus”. The Project is co-financed by the European Union, AIDOS and SFPA.
The Project aims at attaining higher standards of physical, psychological and social well being of women, adolescents and men, through the adoption of a holistic approach to reproductive health. This approach is based on the idea that women's well being depends on the balance of physical, psychological and emotional factors. By focusing on actual health care, prevention and education, women's state of health is considered in the perspective of their entire life cycle from the menarche until after menopause.
The Project targets mainly underprivileged women, adolescents and men living in Damascus, its suburbs and surrounding rural areas. The Project will enhance the clinical and family planning services currently provided by the SFPA clinic located in the Halbouni area.
