The ongoing conflict in Syria is affecting the access to medical treatment for a growing number of the civilian population.

In early 2012, civil society activists in the affected areas requested technical and financial assistance from NORWAC in order to establish health facilities in areas affected by fighting. With generous support from the Government of Norway, NORWAC is supporting medical facilities, running cost for staff and provision of medication and disposables.
