Nutritional profile of Syrian refugee children before resettlement

Abstract
Background
The year 2015 marked the highest number of refugees globally and included record numbers of Syrians moving to neighboring countries. Half of the Syrians were children aged ≤18 years. Our study sought to examine undernutrition and overnutrition among a group of Syrian refugee children who underwent medical screening by IOM for resettlement.

Enhancing the Psychosocial Well-Being of Displaced and Hosting Communities in Lebanon Affected by the Syrian Crisis

In order to respond to the ongoing protracted crisis in Lebanon, the proposed project aims at strengthening the resilience of displaced and hosting communities in Lebanon, through fostering a sustainable psychosocial well-being, intercommunity dialogue and social cohesion. In pursuit of this objective, the proposed action is conceived to build on the program AID 11377 “Psychosocial Support to Crisis Affected, Displaced and Migrant Youth and Their Families in Lebanon”, funded by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS) in 2017 and currently still under implementation.
