HELP WITHOUT BORDERS
As a local non profit organisation, C.M.A has a formal partnership with the public Health authorities of Greece to be able to support them with the establishment of a sustainable health care system in the new camp.
The Chronic and Vulnerability Program works to identify medically vulnerable refugees as quickly as possible and support them in getting their vulnerability recognised by camp management. The project works with Greek doctors to identify vulnerable refugees upon their arrival to the camp or through referrals from other medical actors. Once identified the patients can receive care in the chronic clinics whilst we link them with the EODY, RIC transfer office, the vulnerability committee or UNHCR’s vulnerability relocation program.
In addition to helping ensuring that chronic vulnerable patients are leaving the camp and their numbers are reducing, C.M.A is hiring qualified Greek specialists to provide chronic health care to the refugees in the camp. These doctors will work in improving the relation between this department and the local hospital, along with supporting EODY’s decision to re-build the chronic department.
