Humanitarian Assistance

Project Name: Assisting the Recovery of Typhoon Haiyan-affected Health Centers (Leyte Province, Philippines)
Project Description: Typhoon Haiyan (locally named Yolanda) hit the Philippines on November 8, 2013 and devastated several regions of the country. Leyte Province in Eastern Visayas is one of the most affected areas. Health services to these affected areas were disrupted due to severely damaged facilities and the impact of the event upon human resources, resulting in the temporary closure of some health facilities. These conditions impeded access to quality health services by the population, making them more vulnerable. The TaiwanICDF is cooperating with World Vision Taiwan in providing assistance to local governments in Leyte Province through the rehabilitation of rural health units and Barangay Health Centers damaged by Typhoon Haiyan, thereby improving the community’s access to health services.

Overall, this project will:
1.Improve the capacity of 511 health workers and community members in various health-related areas.
2.Improve access to health information, education and communication (IEC) materials by developing or reproducing 7,098 health promotion IEC materials.
3.Assist 18 Barangay Health Centers to improve access to quality primary health and basic emergency obstetric care services.
