Welcome to the Jordan Cross Border Health Cluster Hub web

Recognising the magnitude of the humanitarian crisis inside Syria, the systemic gaps in coordination, and following the adoption of UN Security Council resolutions 2139, 2165 and 2191, humanitarian actors operating inside Syria from Damascus and from neighbouring countries launched the “Whole of Syria” (WOS) approach to develop a principled, predictable and coherent response to prioritized humanitarian needs through in-country and cross border operations.

A Cross-Border Task Force in Jordan operates under RC/HC’s stewardship, has been established as a senior strategic and decision-making body to oversee strategic coordination of cross border activities as part of the WOS approach. Comprising both country focused and region partners, the Cross Border Task Team aims to develop common policies and response strategies to deliver humanitarian assistance in Syria through cross border assistance. 

The Health Cluster Hub is composed by the partners who activaly contribute to the Health Response in South of Syria, following the Humanitarian Principles and Health response standards. Have monthly meetings and is leaded by World Health organization WHO and International Rescue Committee IRC

Health Resources Availability Monitoring System (HeRAMS)

Health services play a crucial role in preventing avoidable deaths, illness and disability in emergencies. When health facilities and services are damaged, left without medicines, equipment, basic amenities or health workers, they cannot serve the population which may even have heightened healthcare needs due to the emergency.

Monitoring the availability of health services during an emergency is not easy. Uncertainties around access, security and time limitations frequently prevent systematic information gathering. Lack of information, in return, hampers effective decision-making, resource allocation, mobilization and advocacy for health in emergencies.

The HeRAMS approach (Health Resources and Services Availability Monitoring)was developed to face these challenges. HeRAMS is an approach for monitoring health facilities, services and resources availability in emergencies.

The members of the Health Cluster Hub have access to PRIME, the web platform that supports heRAMS process.
