Supply of Orthopedic Implants and Devices to Two Hospitals in Idleb Governorate
Due to the conflict, the Ministry of Health in Damascus has stopped the supply of medical goods to many areas in Syria. Various donors are providing a variety of health goods and services as a matter of relief to medical facilities, but because orthopedic surgeries are expensive and donors have been unable to fill this need, patients receive treatment only in the acute phase of orthopedic events as a stabilization measure. This method has led to many malformation and disability cases. Such cases have lasting economic repercussions on the fragile Syrian economy.
The project aims to procure and supply one year’s worth of orthopedic implant devices and associated consumables for two hospitals in Idleb Governorate through the implementing entity (IE) of the project. The IE will receive and distribute the orthopedic implants to the selected hospitals based on a coordinated programme on needs at the two hospitals. The programme will be agreed between the IE and hospitals’ Surgical Departments on semi-annual basis and required implants will be made available on a timely basis.
Worth approximately Euro 2 million, this project will impact an estimated 6.000 orthopedic surgeries for patients within a period of 24 months. Nearly 1,200,000 people will benefit from the availability and affordability of orthopedic surgeries in the two hospitals. For more information please see:
