All our protection services are conducted in secure spaces established in local community centers, or are integrated with health programming to increase access to these services for marginalized and vulnerable communities, especially women and children.
Mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS). Our MHPSS programming promotes well-being, protects against additional distress or potential psychiatric emergencies, and includes core training and supervision to ensure high-quality implementation.
Child protection (CP). International Medical Corps’ CP programming focuses on the safety and well-being of children through group activities and individual support services for children, as well as for parents and caregivers—aimed at strengthening the protective environment for children and supporting their resilience and recovery.
Gender-based violence (GBV). Our GBV programming focuses on preventing and responding to GBV by addressing the needs of women and girls, as well as the risks they face, in a safe and secure manner. Our GBV activities include group awareness sessions, community outreach, group empowerment sessions and capacity-building for local professionals and community leaders.
