The years of conflict have disrupted the health infrastructure, leaving over 484,000 people requiring urgent assistance and challenging an already overstretched health infrastructure. Limited access to UN-declared besieged and hard-to-reach areas have deprived vulnerable people from accessing essential medical services and supplies.
Across all 14 governorates and 105 health districts, more than half of public hospitals and health centers have either closed or are only partially functional, according to the Health Resources
Availability Mapping System (HeRAMS), implemented by the Health sector in Syria. *
In response to the lack of functioning facilities; shortages of health staff, drugs and medical supplies, Auranitis rehabilitated around 20 hospitals and clinics in Dara and Quneitra to cover essential health care needs of vulnerable populations. One of Auranitis’ remarkable achievements in this sector is providing an alternative source of energy to operate health facilities by implementing a solar system. This has been especially essential to people living in UN-declared besieged and hard to reach areas and those exposed to high intensity of hostilities in addition to the areas contaminated with explosive hazards or where freedom of movement and/or access to services remain limited.
