The Humanitarian Response for Rohingya Refugees programme is helping Rohingya refugees who have fled the violence in the Rakhine State of Myanmar and have now settled in the camps of the host community in Cox’s Bazar District and Bhasan Char Island, Bangladesh.

To ensure a healthy life of the community, the project provides health services, regular medication and follow-ups to the vulnerable Rohingya refugees as well as to the host community for people of all ages and sexes, with a specific focus on pregnant women and persons with disabilities, covering an estimated total of 48,640 beneficiaries.

The project includes measures such as allowing access to vital medical services, training in family planning and primary health care, the provision of assistive devices and hygiene kits/devices, integrated WASH activities in order to supply safe water for drinking and personal hygiene, the provision and maintenance of latrines segregated by gender, a continuous awareness campaign and behavioural change strategy regarding COVID-19 prevention, emergency food distribution for malnourished or undernourished persons as well as educational support for 600 traumatised or handicapped children.
