IOM's project promoting health and wellbeing amongst migrants transiting through Morocco, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and Yemen


IOM's (International Organization for Migration) project aims to support the relevant authorities and other stakeholders in migration management with a focus on promoting the health and wellbeing amongst migrants transiting through Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen and Libya. All countries and the the activities are ODA eligible. IOM will implement in each target country a range of activities: direct assistance to migrants in need of medical and humanitarian assistance, assistance to national authorities to respond to and manage the health needs of migrants and their host communities in migrant-dense areas, capacity building of governmental and non-governmental health structures to deliver quality, “migrant-friendly” and “psychosocially aware” health care services, information sharing on available health care, health issues and other issues of concern to migrants with health needs and support to civil society to assist the most vulnerable cases, including victims of trafficking (VoTs), women migrants, single mothers and unaccompanied migrant children (UMCs). In addition IOM will enhance the regional dialogue on migration issues. A similar project has been supported previously, but only in Egypt and Yemen since 2010. That project ended in the autumn 2014 and it reached most of the targets and in some cases also exceeded them. Founded in the year 1951 IOM has 156 member countries, 9 regional offices and offices in 100 countries around the world. IOM country office in Rabat has the overall responsibility of this project in co-operation with the country offices in Tunisia, Libya, Yemen and Egypt. The total funding for this project is 2 750 000 euros for 30 months implementation period during the years 2015-2017.
