Morocco: Voluntary Return and Reintegration for Stranded Migrants (RAISE) – Contribution of Switzerland

The assisted voluntary return and reintegration (AVRR) programme offers three main advantages: - It offers a humane and dignified solution to migrants who find themselves stranded or at risk of being stranded in Morocco, unable to continue their journey towards Europe or to return to their countries of origin, with no alternative to their vulnerable situation. - AVRR is also an essential element for the integrity of migration and asylum systems. In addition to the assistance provided to the migrants, the AVRR Programme is also in the interest of the Moroccan authorities and Europe as it contributes to lowering the migratory pressure on Morocco and subsequently on Europe. - It also represents an urgent relief for those migrants who need immediate assistance. IOM prioritizes the most vulnerable cases, such as victims of trafficking, unaccompanied minors, single mothers, and migrants with special medical needs.

Strengthening the Prevention, Detection, and Treatment of Diseases Affecting US-bound Refugees and other Globally Mobile Populations

As the number of forcibly displaced individuals and the threat of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases rise, it is crucial to improve the understanding, prevention, detection, and treatment of infectious and non-infectious diseases affecting these mobile populations. Therefore, we propose to implement research activities to examine alternative diagnostic and treatment regimens for select diseases, to develop and evaluate enhanced outbreak detection and response systems, and to investigate and characterize health conditions affecting globally mobile populations with the overall goal of strengthening health assessment procedures and disease prevention and control activities. This, in turn, will protect and improve the health of these populations, identify best practices and provide evidence-based strategies for disease prevention and control, and reduce the risk of infectious disease importation into the US.

Empowering Tawergha IDPs through Community Based Protection and Mental Health and Psychosocial

In 2016, facilitated by the UNSMIL Human Rights Department, the local councils of Misurata and Tawergha, started an official reconciliation process with the aim of ending the displacement and addressing the reparations to the victims of both sides. The agreement was signed on August 31, 2016. Since then, the pact was modified multiple times and parties failed on the implementation of the agreement. Up to date, Tawerghas are still living in very precarious makeshift sites across Libya and a recent attempt to return has been disrupted by militias from Misurata in February 2018, creating secondary displacement settlements in the areas of Bani Walid and Sirt. The aim of the project is to articulate a response that builds on the residual community resilience and positive coping mechanisms, through a community-based approach. The methodology of the project includes the set-up of an integrated Protection and MHPSS mobile team, which will work in collaboration with identified community-based stakeholders, to either deliver directly or supervise camp based Tawergha actors in the pursuit of protection and psychosocial support objectives.

Psychosocial Support to Crisis Affected, Displaced and Migrant Youth and Their Families in Lebanon

IOM aims to strengthen the resilience of communities through the provision of psychosocial support (PSS) and the promotion of social cohesion. On the one hand, this project will allow IOM giving continuity to the activities carried out through previous contribution granted by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS). Specifically, IOM will maintain its support at the recreational and counselling centers in Baalbeck and in Baysariyeh (South Lebanon), adding more specialized services and related trainings to guarantee a smooth running of the centers and eventually contribute to their self-sustainability. On the other hand, IOM will expand its program to ideally adapt to the growing needs on the ground: following the example of the two above-mentioned centers, IOM will establish a new recreational and counselling center in the North of Lebanon, an area with large psychosocial support service gaps, identified in coordination with the MoSA. IOM will also provide a series of trainings on PSS and social cohesion for the staff of Social Development Centers (SDCs) run by the MoSA as well as to other relevant actors, and will furthermore mainstream psychosocial considerations in the provision of livelihood and protection activities.

Humanitarian Assistance to Vulnerable IDPs Affected by the Mosul Crisis

This contribution through USAIM helps to supplement IOM’s existing capacity to support Iraqi IDPs affected by the Mosul crisis. IOM has identified a wide range of needs for conflict-affected populations and, as a result, has been delivering comprehensive emergency response activities, including NFI, Shelter, CCCM, Health, and Psycho-Social Support. While IOM has been providing services to IDPs in dire need, the majority of IDPs in the E-sites still require life-saving assistance. Elderly, disabled and injured IDPs are particularly affected since their limited mobility further compounds their access to essential services. Likewise, youth engagement and opportunities of recreational activities for children have been somewhat neglected in the humanitarian response.

Medical Service Fee Project under Resettlement Programmes and Ad hoc Medical Services

Several Member State fund medical activities, namely, health assessments and pre-departure fitness-to-travel checks, using service fee structure, to cover staff, office and operational costs. In particular, service fee structure is preferred by the Member States that plan small and/or ad hoc caseloads. Medical components of some other projects such as the Australian and Canadian resettlement programme and Assisted Voluntary Return (AVR) are by donors based on service fees. These projects have separate budgets and project IDs. In case of small or ad hoc caseloads projectization to separate projects is impractical, considering only a small proportion of the costs related to each project, and therefore, these projects are frequently undercharged, while the costs are being covered from larger projects. Initially, the project will include service-fee-based health assessments for Austria, Croatia, Netherlands, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Malta, Portugal, Romania and Spain. In order to streamline the financial management of the EU resettlement projects it is proposed to combine fee-based projects into a single one.

Enhancing Saving Lives at Sea Operations by the Libyan Coast Guard

The overall objective of this project is to enhance Saving Lives at Sea operations through providing lifesaving equipment, targeted infrastructural support and related capacity building. The project responds to the continuing deepening conflict in Libya, destruction of infrastructure and difficult socioeconomic conditions that disproportionately affect migrants, and influence mobility trends in the region. Despite efforts to broker national agreements for establishing a unified Government, it has not been possible to break the cycle of violence. The absence of the rule of law and political stalemate worsens the situation for the most vulnerable migrants and in this context, human traffickers and smugglers have established vast and well-connected networks. With Libya's future uncertain and living conditions deteriorating, many people set out on perilous sea journeys to Europe, exacerbating stretched resources of the Libyan Coast Guard (LCG), who are often required to respond through search and rescue (SAR) at sea operations. Migrants who have been rescued/intercepted at sea are returned to points of disembarkation, which are lacking adequate infrastructure to offer a minimum level of first aid and primary health assistance.

Maternal and Neo Natal Child Health Project in Rakhine

Access to basic services has and continues to be historically low in Rakhine both for the Muslim and Rakhine Population. In recent years access has further diminished in central Rakhine, with Muslim populations facing a number of barriers in accessing health care, while historically it has always been low in Northern Rakhine. The provision of health care services throughout the state is complex and multifaceted, resulting in services being provided in an inconsistent patchwork. In some locations, primary health care access is availed, while in other locations secondary health care is also offered. Although the referral pathway has improved, there are inconsistencies in the way that medical authorities apply established protocols, which contributes to inequitable access and services. Based on experience, and in light of the direction outlined by IOM, the new ‘Whole of Rakhine’ Strategy, IOM, would look to build on the existing work with the Ministry of Health and Sports in Myanmar and in Rakhine State to support health systems using a “whole of township” approach, with a focus on supporting Maternal and Child Health and Primary Health Care. This strategy will not focus on temporary service provision, but rather ensure a conflict-sensitive approach to addressing chronic health system deficiencies and work closely with State and Township Health Departments, and all communities, to address critical gaps in health service availability and accessibility. The primary aim of the activities would be increased accessibility to, and availability of essential maternal and child health services of Buthidaung and Paukdaw.

Enhancing Access to Safe Drinking Water for Vulnerable IDP and Host Communities in Taizz and Abyan Governorates

Since the beginning of the crisis in Yemen, the conflict continues reaching new areas in the country, and leading to the displacement of more families seeking safety and security. Due to the lack of access to conflict areas, some of the most vulnerable communities remain difficult to reach by much needed emergency assistance, while others could not be adequately assessed due to security constraints. This project aims to reduce levels of morbidity and mortality among vulnerable populations displaced to and within Taizz and Abyan governorates, where critical WASH infrastructure has been destroyed or made inoperable by the conflict, or has become insufficient to address the needs of conflict-affected communities. While durable solutions for water provision are found through water site rehabilitation or enhancement, IOM proposes to bridge the gap in access to safe drinking water in Taizz by trucking water in the districts of Salh, Al-Mudhaffar, and Al-Qahira, while assessing and rehabilitating two water sites in the districts of Al-Mawasit and As-Shamayatayn, in order to improve access to water in these areas.

Emergency Assistance to Conflict Affected Populations: Human Mobility Tracking and Psychosocial Support to the Most Vulnerable Mobile Populations - Cameroon

The increase of Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA) attacks on the Nigerian and Cameroonian territory since 2014 resulted in a displacement and refugee crisis. At the beginning of 2015, no system was in place to track and monitor displacement in Cameroon, resulting in a lack of clear information on the scope of the crisis and affected populations. To address this need, IOM implements the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) since November 2015 which indicated the presence of 158,316 IDPs, 30,585 former IDPs who have returned to their previous place of residence and 11,482 asylum seekers / Third Country Nationals (TCN). The proposed action aims to build on this exercise to produce precise data and information to better inform humanitarian interventions carried out by governmental and humanitarian partners.

Emergency Assistance to the Most Vulnerable Communities Suffering from the Effects of Flooding and Landslides in Papua New Guinea (EAT) - Papua New Guinea

After months of suffering from an El Nino-driven drought, large parts of the country have experienced torrential rain since 12th February, exacerbating the existing levels of vulnerability. The resulting flooding and landslides have affected homes, food gardens, water sources and infrastructure in several provinces of Papua New Guinea (PNG). The provision of timely and targeted assistance will prove pivotal in saving lives and alleviating the suffering of the worst affected communities. IOM will deliver emergency relief assistance to the most severely affected and vulnerable communities in Jiwaka, Simbu and Morobe Provinces. IOM is currently operational in the targeted provinces, thus this project will be mutually complimentary to existing operations that are addressing food security and WASH concerns. IOM, in line with the NFI, WASH, Nutrition and Food Security Cluster’s recommendations will address the immediate needs of the affected population through the distribution of household NFI kits and household food baskets to 200 of the most vulnerable households across the aforementioned provinces. In parallel to the coming initial community assessments, IOM will prioritize the registration of beneficiaries to ensure the rapid distribution of food and NFIs to households in greatest need.

Protecting Vulnerable Internally Displaced Persons, Returnees, and Host Communities in Mali through Identification of Basic Needs, and Provision of Direct Psychosocial Assistance by Protection Teams and Referral to Mental Health Professionals

Since the 2012 crisis, with more than 600,000 individuals displaced, IOM started managing the internal displacement database in coordination with the Government of Mali. With this database management, IOM and the Government of Mali reached the most remote areas to collect information on internal displacement and returns. In order to better respond to the need, the PROTECTION cluster has divided the areas of intervention among all the cluster partners. IOM is responsible for areas of high return and high internal displacement. This project will hence target returnees, IDPs and host communities in high return and high internal displacement areas. The CERF funds will be used to continue assessing IDPs and returnees’ needs. It will also enable to attend to the protection needs identified. The project has the merit to address the needs based on actual assessments conducted on IDPs and returnees. The project will provide psychosocial supports (Individual visits, focus group discussions,…) to the most vulnerable population including those in the host communities also affected by the conflict.

Provision of Transportation Assistance and Transitional Shelters to South Sudanese Refugees - Ethiopia

This project aims to provide emergency border evacuation, pre-departure medical screening or FTT and transportation assistance to 5,000 asylum seekers/ refugees expected at the border points (Tirgol and Pagak) and waiting stations (Matar), in Gambella region. Among the 5,000 individuals, 70% are women and children. Thus immediate evacuation/relocation of these people would be critical to saving their lives as services in these places are limited with no provision of food, limited access to basic health care services underlying malnutrition, and morbidity and mortality rates increasing. Relocation to the camps, where provision of services is more sustainable and accessible for refugees, is vital to prevent a deterioration of the status of the refugees and preventable loss of life.

Under this grant, IOM aims to support the Secretariat to achieve the activities above and contribute to the overall reduction of HIV incidence among men in the military. Furthermore, the Secretariat has noted that within the military there is often a weak understanding and acceptable of human rights based approaches, especially as it relates to concepts of GBV. The Secretariat has proposed to engage with senior level military leadership as well as leadership in other Department of Defense and Interior units (Police, Prison, Wildlife and Judicial Officers) to enhance awareness and understanding of their obligations related to GBV and human rights within the uniformed services with the aim to achieve a systemic change in how vulnerable populations are perceived and treated.

Fiji Cyclone Response: Shelter and NFI Pipeline-Australia

On 20 and 21 February 2016, Fiji was hit by a Category 5 Severe Tropical Cyclone, leaving a path of destruction across the Pacific Island nation. Tropical Cyclone Winston – the most powerful storm on record in the Southern Hemisphere – has left tens of thousands of Fijians stranded, many without water, shelter, food and other essential services. In support of the Shelter Cluster, IOM will respond to the emergency shelter/NFI needs of families with damaged/destroyed houses in the 12 priority areas thereby preventing exposure to weather conditions, and in turn directly contributing towards decreased morbidity and mortality. IOM’s approach during the life-saving phase of the response aims to address shelter needs through a combination of in-kind, regionally procured and locally procured materials. Shelter items will include: plastic tarpaulins, ropes/fixings, toolkits and other NFIs that meet the emergency shelter and household needs of the affected population. Tarpaulins can be used later during the recovery stage along with roofing sheets and timber which will likely be included in support packages after the first 90 days.

Specialised Training on Psychosocial Support to Victims of Trafficking for Government and Civil Society Organisations in Tajikistan

Psychosocial support to victims of trafficking (VOTs) should be integral to the services provided by concerned structures in Tajikistan. Currently, the limited number of services provided by government and civil society partners does not include psychosocial support to trafficking victims. This is due to a lack of information, knowledge, and skills necessary to address the health care and social reintegration needs of this vulnerable group. This project will enhance vital capacities of the Tajik government and NGO partners to provide psychosocial care to victims and ensure that these efforts are integrated into long-term rehabilitation practice. Specifically, this 3 months project aims at improving government and civil society knowledge on psychosocial assistance to VOTs, and their role in preventing the crime of human trafficking. Activities conducted during the project period aim to increase the Tajik Government’s and civil society organisations’ (CSO) understanding of Trafficking in Persons (TIP), specific needs of victims, and skills to deliver psychosocial support through organising 3 two-day specialised trainings delivered by an international expert in the cities of Dushanbe, Kulyab and Khudzhand.

115 Call-back System: Implementing a System and Framework Designed to Measure Qualitatively and Quantitatively the Response by Government and Partners to Alerts Generated by the 115 Call Center, Guinea

To understand the response and action taken after an alert has been dispatched, eHealth Africa proposes to implement the 'call back project,' whereby a group of callback monitors contact callers (that reported alerts to 115) and ask a survey of questions regarding the response that they received. The purpose of the callback project is five-fold: 1. To reassure the callers that have reported suspected EVD or death cases who may, due to a lack of resources for response, (i.e. bed space, ambulances, etc) have to wait for extended periods of time to receive a response from their alert. 2. To provide a means of assessing the speed of the response (albeit according to recollection of the callers memory). 3. To provide a partial back stop to the response process whereby urgent cases that are identified through the 115 call-backs that have not been responded too are flagged as immediately forwarded to the prefecture response team for action. 4. To provide a tool for conducting trial/pilot phone-based KAP-surveys. 5. Lay the ground work for a general public health role for the 115 call center in 2016.

“6DEGREE.ORG”

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is committed to helping survivors of human trafficking and related exploitation and abuse around the world. Since 1994, IOM has identified more than 70,000 survivors and works to deliver appropriate direct assistance to meet their individual protection needs. Most often, this includes humanitarian, physical and mental health, and legal support, as well as the assistance to help achieve economic and social self-sufficiency. Despite these efforts, IOM often lacks sufficient resources to adequately assist survivors in need; being unable to provide comprehensive support in some cases, and any support at all in others. To help address these shortcomings, and increase the numbers of survivors it is able to help and the extent to which it is able to help them, IOM has partnered with Microsoft to develop 6degree.org. 6degree.org is IOM’s new online crowdfunding portal, which provides private persons with the opportunity to contribute financially to the direct assistance and protection of survivors of human trafficking and related exploitation and abuse. The portal will allow participating IOM missions with existing structures to protect and assist victims to supplement the assistance provided to individual victims with additional support to better contribute to their sustainable reintegration.

Humanitarian Assistance to Bangladeshi Migrants Stranded in the Andaman Sea - Bangladesh

Irregular maritime migration from Bangladesh towards South East Asia has seen a steady increase over the years, with organized smuggling routes transporting people through the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea trying to reach South East Asian countries like Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia. What may have begun as a voluntary journey is transformed into a severe case of trafficking. While the exact modality of repatriation has not yet been determined, it is likely that the Bangladeshi Trafficking Victims from Myanmar will be handed over to the Bangladesh Coast Guard, who will bring them to Teknaf and within the same day hand them over to the Police. The police will process the victims in court and take testimonials about the smugglers, a process which will take a few days, after which the trafficking victims will be released. For the 400 expected to be repatriated in the near future IOM is proposing to provide the following support: - Reintegration Support; - Medical Support; - Staffing

Desk Review on Policies and Legal Frameworks that Supports Access of Migrants to Services for Malaria

This project builds upon efforts in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) to halt the spread of malaria, especially among migrant populations. Although migration in itself is not a definitive risk for malaria, several factors can place migrants and local communities alike in vulnerable situations. Calls for the eradication of malaria require the development of global and regional strategies based upon a strong and consistent evidence base. There is an urgent need for a comprehensive strategy addressing the issues of migrant and mobile populations (MMP) in the context of the greater goal of malaria elimination in the GMS, based on the World Health Assembly resolution (61.17) on the health of migrants and operational framework, as well as recommendations from various global and regional committees.

Community-based Malaria Prevention, Detection and Treatment in Mobility Impacted Communities in Mon and Kayin States II

The major reasons for malaria morbidity and mortality in the targeted townships are late diagnosis and ineffective treatment. In many cases the illness is treated based on presumption rather than through laboratory confirmation. In addition, highly effective anti-malarial drugs are either not available or affordable for most of the rural poor population. Many of the migrants working in Mon State are particularly vulnerable as they live and work in forested areas, and come from non-endemic regions and thereby lack resistance to local malaria strains. Financial and transportation constraints further inhibit communities to access services. To meet these demands, the project will be implemented using a combination of approaches and techniques including community-based outreach and education, mobile clinic provision, central service provision, and capacity-building of local public and private health staff and facilities to ensure sustainability of activities. The approaches will be similar to those successfully employed in IOM’s 3DF funded Mon State project, with an increased focus on migrant workplaces.

HIV and TB Integrated Biological and Behavioural Study (IBBS) for Migrant Mine Worker Communities of Origin in Lesotho, Mozambique and Swaziland- South Africa

Despite the HIV and TB vulnerabilities faced by mineworkers, their families and affected communities, there has been little research conducted on prevalence, risk and vulnerability factors, focusing on the sending communities in mineworker countries of origin. To address this gap, IOM, in partnership with the Governments of Lesotho, Mozambique and Swaziland, is proposing to undertake an HIV Integrated Biological and Behavioural Study (IBBS) and TB Testing in selected migrant mine worker sending communities of Lesotho, Mozambique and Swaziland. The HIV IBBS and TB Testing will provide estimates on the prevalence of HIV and infection rate, other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and TB, as well as provide information on risk behaviours and status (e.g. migration status, demographic data). This will provide much needed evidence for future programming, in particular to support the implementation of Section 3.c.IV of the SADC Declaration on TB in the Mining Sector which seeks to strengthen programmatic interventions.

Assistance d’Urgence aux Populations du Hodh Echarghi en Insécurité Alimentaire Sévère

La situation précaire des ménages du Hodh El Chargui est accentuée par la présence des réfugiés maliens localisés dans le camp de Mbera. En effet, la crise malienne a profondément déstabilisé l’économie des ménages de la zone selon les résultats de la mission conjointe des acteurs humanitaires qui a eu lieu au mois de juin 2014 dans la Moughataa de Bassikounou. La dégradation de la situation de sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle des ménages pourrait avoir un impact sur les relations intra- et intercommunautaires. Face à la rareté des ressources, les catégories de population vulnérables que sont les enfants, les femmes et les personnes âgées pourraient se retrouver marginalisées dans l’octroi de l’assistance humanitaire. Bien plus, la dégradation des conditions socioéconomiques des ménages affectés entraine souvent des pertes de droit pour les femmes, les personnes âgées, les personnes à besoins spécifiques ainsi que la recrudescence de formes traditionnelles et modernes de trafic et traite d’enfants. De ce fait, la protection des droits civils, politiques, économiques, sociaux et culturels de ces groupes vulnérables apparait comme primordiale dans les activités à mettre en place dans le cadre de ce projet. Les besoins des hommes et des femmes sont pris en compte tout au long du projet. Du fait d’une incidence de la pauvreté et de la vulnérabilité plus accentuée chez les ménages dirigés par les femmes en Mauritanie, le ciblage communautaire aboutit généralement à une forte représentation de cette catégorie de ménages. La dimension genre est donc automatiquement prise en compte.

Emergency Border Evacuation and Transportation Assistance to South Sudanese Refugees in Gambella

This project aims to provide emergency border evacuation and transportation assistance to the asylum seekers/ refugees currently at the border points and waiting stations within Ethiopia. Failure to obtain funds for the evacuation of people from the entry points and waiting stations would mean that those in Tiergol will be without any humanitarian assistance, including food or health care, for several weeks as the river will not allow for access soon. The refugees at Pagak, though access is less difficult, will face similar challenges as services at the border are limited with no provision of food, increasing malnutrition and mortality rates. Relocation to the camps, where provision of services is more sustainable and accessible for refugees, is vital to prevent a deterioration of the status of the refugees and loss of life.

Sustained and Expanded Access to Safe Water Supply, Improved Sanitation and Hygiene Practices for Vulnerable Women and Children, including in Emergency affected populations in underserved areas of Somalia

The project contributes immensely to the sector/cluster priorities in that it seeks to provide timely and quality lifesaving assistance to vulnerable communities in underserved areas including those in humanitarian emergency. This includes rehabilitation and restoration of strategic water points which will result in access to safe water for the drought affected populations and newly accessible areas. Provision of WASH services in IDP camps will ensure access to lifesaving assistance for newly displaced IDPs to avert outbreak of water related diseases. Through strengthening or establishment of sustainable management structures the project will contribute to building resilience of vulnerable households and communities against future shocks. Additionally, the project will provide reliable and adequate access to sanitation facilities for people in humanitarian situations. Alongside the sanitation interventions, support will be provided to promote improved hygiene practices among targeted population aimed at encouraging communities to stop harmful sanitation and hygiene behaviour. The project will contribute to the following specific objectives: 1) To prevent escalation of morbidity and mortality among children under five due to seasonal Acute Watery Diarrhoea in Central South Somalia and the high-risk districts of Puntland and Somaliland, through the provision of WASH services to emergency affected populations and host communities; 2) To provide temporary and sustained access to safe drinking water, hygiene promotion and sanitation to 1,500 Vulnerable HHs in Bulo Burto and 1,670 HH in Beledweyne affected by displacement.

Provision of Temporary and Sustained Access to Safe Water, Appropriate Sanitation Facilities and Hygiene (WASH) to internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Kismayo

Food insecurity has entered crisis level in Kismayo. IDPs are particularly affected, with Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) rates of 17 per cent above the threshold of 15 per cent (OCHA, 2014). This affects 31,000 IDPs are reportedly residing in Lower Juba region (UNHCR, 2014), two third of them which being urban areas like Kismayo. Most IDP settlements are built on public or private land and congested with makeshift shelters. After heavy flooding in Kismayo in June 2014, which damaged many IDP settlements, the local authority announced the relocation of IDPs to higher grounds. Access to safe and clean water is another major challenge in Kismayo as many groundwater sources are contaminated by high salinity and defecation (IOM KAP survey, 2013). For most IDP households (HHs), water is the second highest expenditure item after food (REACH, 2014). A combination of mMalnutrition, and lack of clean water and appropriate sanitation facilities and good hygiene practices combined increase morbidity and mortality. Acute watery diarrhoea (AWD)/cholera, measles, polio and other diseases are prevalent throughout the region and especially among IDPs. Wash Cluster and IOM assessments identified Kismayo to be high risk of AWD due to poor WASH infrastructures and access to safe and clean water. Amid increasing food insecurity and poor water and sanitation infrastructures in Kismayo’s IDP settlements, emergency provision of WASH packages are urgently needed.

Life-saving Emergency Health Care Services to Internally Displaced Persons in Mogadishu and Garowe, Somalia

IDPs are one of the population groups most adversely affected by the current food crisis and recent military offense. Global Acute Malnutirition (GAM) rates among IDPs have exceeded the emergency threshold of 15 per cent in Mogadishu (18.9%) and Garowe (21%) (OCHA, Aug 2014). Malnutrition increases morbidity and mortality among IDPs, putting affected populations at heightened risk of epidemics such as acute watery diarrhoea (AWD) and measles which occured, for instance, in Mogadishu in April and May 2014 (OCHA, 2014). Amid low immunization rates and poor reproductive health care services, children and mothers are particularly affected. Primary health care (PHC) provision is often lacking, especially in IDP settlements. Banadir region is a major recipient of newly displaced populations most of whom head probably for Mogadishu. Approximately 16,000 new IDPs reportedly arrived in Banadir region between March and May 2014 (FSNAU, 2014) and 7,100 in July 2014 (UNHCR, Jul.2014). New arrivals of IDPs can be expected in both Mogadishu and Garowe as a result of drought and conflict, putting further pressure on their health care infrastructures. A spot check by IOM in September 2014 revealed that several thousand IDPs arrived in eight IDP camps since the latest AMISOM offense in August 2014. In sum, there is an urgent need to provide emergency PHC in order to ease the effects of the current food crisis among IDPs, returnees and host communities in both locations.

Distribution of Lifesaving Emergency Assistance to Conflict Affected Individuals in Oromia and Somali Region

The overall objective of the proposed intervention is to provide basic life-saving emergency assistance to conflict affected 17,316 individuals in Oromia and Somali region as shown in the table below. Out of these 14,344 individuals (2,658 HH) will receive standard ES/NFI kits, while 2,972 individuals (500 HH) will receive shelter assistance in terms of cash or in-kind support. The provision of life saving assistance will alleviate human suffering during the displacement of the affected communities and will provide much needed support to families without shelter and basic non-food-item kits that include plastic sheeting, and robe to provide physical protection, blankets and sleeping mats for thermal comfort, jerry cans for water storage, kitchen sets for hygienic food preparation and consumption; mosquito nets to protect against vector borne diseases identified as a humanitarian need by an inter-agency standing committee. As most of the displaced families are staying with host families, the NFI kits given to the IDPs will help reduce pressure on host family resources currently over stretched as a result of limited resources within the host community households. The provision of shelter and non-food items will additionally support returning IDPs to their places of origin, when peace initiatives succeed, and to rebuild their shelter and household assets as the majority have lost everything during the conflict.

Physical Security Response to IDP Victims/Survivors of SGBV, Haiti Phase IV

This project aims to address persistent nature of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in Haiti among IDPs and vulnerable individuals in communities by addressing displacement and ensuring personal security of SGBV victims/survivors through coordinated commune-level emergency response and helping enable a nation-wide SGBV data collection, storage and analysis system for community-based response actors . The proposed project takes stock of previous and ongoing counter-SGBV programming led by IOM in partnership with local authorities, commune-level response actors and international partners, including UN Police (UNPOL), PNH and MCFDF. With the support of previous BPRM funding, IOM has facilitated the formation of a commune-level SGBV case reporting and referral system, aiming to transfer responsibilities for handling new cases to local authorities, health actors and the judiciary. Continued participation of these stakeholders is crucial to solidify the newly formed referral system and to foster local ownership of the direct assistance process. The proposed approach aims to deliver a comprehensive SGBV response in IDP camps relying on three pillars: (1) safety and security of the victims/survivors as priority, including urgent relocation to a temporary safe house if necessary; (2) solidification of the institutional network of response actors; and (3) mass awareness-raising on the issue of SGBV.

Emergency Humanitarian Assistance to the Refugee Population in Upper Nile State, South Sudan (PRM)

IOM plans to upgrade existing services and infrastructure in order to provide more sustainable solutions such as solar powered water supply systems. Presently at Doro camp, the water consumed daily by over 48,000 refugees is pumped from aquifers through 18 motorized pumping stations, disinfected with chlorine, and distributed across the camp through 18 kilometres of piping networks. The water is regularly tested to ensure that it is safe to drink. This system requires regular maintenance, water treatment supplies to ensure water safety, fuel to run the generators, and replacement of parts that are rapidly worn out by daily use and harsh conditions. 140-180 new latrines are being installed every month to replace full latrines and to meet additional needs. Extensive hygiene promotion activities are required to reach a population of 48,000, many of whom are illiterate, in an effort to prevent the spread of waterborne diseases in such a flood-prone and confined space.

Integrated Support Programme for Populations Affected by Displacement in Sudan

This action will continue to strengthen assistance to IDPs and impacted population on the move by providing critical information to better address the needs of the affected population. IOM's Global Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) is a system composed of a variety of tools and processes designed and developed to flexibly and rapidly track and monitor population movements during crises. The DTM empowers responders to regularly monitor developments as movements and crises evolve, providing the most up-to-date and nuanced information. IOM Sudan's current tracking and monitoring of displacements and population movements, registration and verification of IDPs, IDP sites assessments and verifications, and village assessments all form part of this DTM. This information is widely shared with humanitarian actors and the Government to provide emergency assistance, help for long plan interventions, and raise funds based on accurate information. In addition, given IOM's wide access within all camps and settlements in Darfur and the IDP settlements in South Kordofan, IOM will be able to address needs where other actors and sectors have identified gaps. IOM's important coordination role in returns also continues to provide accurate information on population movement and trends. In addition, given IOM's access to most of the IDP camps / settlements receiving new IDP arrivals, and since IOM is responsible for the registration and verification of the new arrivals, IOM will have full access to the beneficiaries, and therefore be in a strong position to distribute NFIs to the verified IDPs through teams on the ground. Finally, IOM will continue responding to the health needs of the population of Al Sereif camp in South Darfur.

IBBS Survey in Hargeisa and Rapid Assessment in Mogadishu of the Round 8 HIV Grant - Somalia

Severe data and information management limitations have hampered forecasting, planning and sound policy formulation in Somalia. Specifically, there is a dearth of data amongst key populations at risk of HIV in Somalia. Trends from available sources, which are few, indicate that the HIV epidemic is concentrated among the key populations in Somalia; it showed a HIV prevalence of 5.3% among female sex workers (FSWs). For example, in 2008, IOM, in collaboration with partners, carried out an IBBS survey Hargeisa. For future planning, it is therefore critical that a follow-up IBBS is undertaken to establish patterns in HIV prevalence amongst these sample populations. In Hargeisa, Somaliland, this project will investigate HIV prevalence and risk behaviours among these at-risk populations through an integrated biological and behavioural surveillance (IBBS) survey with FSWs and a rapid assessment amongst FSW, uniformed services, truck drives, port workers and seafarers in Mogadishu, Somalia. In Mogadishu, the project will target high-risk groups to establish baseline data presence and context of key populations at risk of HIV infection. This data will inform HIV programming and resource mobilization for combination HIV prevention, and contribute to the Somali HIV response to become evidence-informed through operational research. Overall, it will contribute to key data collection to inform the development of the new HIV/AIDS Strategic Framework for Somalia, to be finalized by early 2013.

Assessing the Gains from Rural-Urban Migration in Viet Nam

The project falls under a Joint Programme between the United Nations and the Government of Vietnam toward implementation of the National Target Programme on New Rural Development (NTP-NRD), or ‘Tam Nong’. IOM will conduct a policy-focused study on rural-urban labour migration with a component that focuses on migrant health. The ‘New Rural Areas’ established by Programme aim to provide higher quality of life and increased employment opportunities, and therefore, presumably fewer incentives to migrate. The project aims to test this hypothesis with a comparative study between households in the New Rural Areas and external ones. The study will include a health component, as migrant health-seeking behaviour is a significant and understudied factor in rural development in Viet Nam. By improving the evidence base on the impact of the NTP-NRD on rural-urban labour migration and health-seeking behaviour, the project will enable policy makers to better assess the role of migration in rural development. Recommendations will focus on creating conditions that maximize migration and ways to channel gains toward rural development.

This project aims to contribute to regularised migration status, access to basic services and improved integration for Brazilian migrants in Guyana. In pursuit of this objective, IOM will initiate the establishment of a Migrants’ Resource Centre (MRC) that will support the provision of reliable information, including migrants’ rights and obligations in Guyana, consular services, common health and education issues, how to legalise one’s status and good mining practices, in order to foster integration of Brazilian migrants in Guyana. The centre will be located in Georgetown (as all migrants are required to travel to Georgetown to access legalization services); in addition, IOM will work closely with private sector owners of mining camps, as they are stationed in the outlying regions and will be the vehicle to share information about the MRC and its services. Information will be shared using both print and visual messages based on the literacy levels of Brazilian migrants. Hence, migrants who are semi-literate will access information via short videos. Brazilian migrant miners will be able to listen and view these visual messages, since most if not all mining camps are equipped with DVD players and several Brazilian Migrants have there personal players as well. Some camps are also equipped with televisions.

Legal Empowerment of Women Heads of Migrant Households, Phase II - Tajikistan

The overall objective of this 6-month follow-up project is to further increase the protection of the rights of women heads of migrant households in order to reduce their vulnerability in the absence of their spouses. IOM aims to achieve this goal through close coordination with its local Migrant Support Centre (NGO Shahrvand) together with the input and joint action of government agencies such as the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, Committee for Women and Family Affairs, and local community leaders. Concretely, the project activities will provide women heads of migrant households no longer in contact with their husbands or abandoned by them practical legal consultation, direct legal aid and accompaniment to legal proceedings when necessary. A total of 500 women will benefit directly from this action, while another 4000 will benefit from increased awareness of their rights and economic opportunities available to them. As the problems facing women heads of migrant households also include economic hardship, psychosocial needs, and others, IOM recognizes that this project’s primary emphasis on legal support is not meant to provide a comprehensive solution to their needs.
