The Syrian crisis is currently described as the greatest humanitarian challenge for the international community and the MENA region. Due to the escalating conflict in Syria, dozens of Syrians are forced to flee their homes every day. To date, an estimated 6.3 million Syrians are internally displaced and 4.8 million have sought refuge in other countries (UNHCR).
Funded by ECHO and OFDA, Relief International’s health programme supports 21 static facilities and three mobile clinics in north Syria. The main objectives of this third-party monitoring (TPM) assignment are to evaluate the projects inside Syria to provide monitoring and verification of Relief International’s implementation of activities and achievements against targets; to assess the extent to which the program has achieved its objectives; and to engage with beneficiaries in order to gain more in-depth information on patient satisfaction and needs.
Most recently, the ECHO‐funded “Lifesaving Emergency Assistance for Protracted Conflict in Syria – Phase IV (LEAP IV)” project, which builds upon RI’s previous related projects to continue the provision of healthcare services in six health facilities and three mobile clinics across Aleppo, Idleb and Hama, was evaluated.
- To provide monitoring and verification of RI’s complete implementation of activities, data keeping, patient records and achievements against targets
- To assess the extent to which the program thus far has achieved its objectives feeding into the overall goal
- To engage with beneficiaries in order to gain more in‐depth information on patient satisfaction, solicit their suggestions and identify further needs
