World Malaria Day - The Middle East Response (MER) Programme


The Middle East Response (MER) Programme is an innovative multi-country approach managed from IOM Amman, Jordan, since January 2017 and supported by the Global Fund. The MER Programme aims to deliver continuum of care in challenging operating environments through the provision of essential HIV, tuberculosis and malaria services. The interventions are geared towards addressing the needs of key populations and other vulnerable groups, including refugees and internally displaced people. The activities are deployed in hard-to-reach areas in Syria and Yemen, as well as in urban and camp areas in Jordan and Lebanon. Activities to end malaria are mainly implemented in Yemen through a country based team backed by Amman office. On the World Malaria Day, we would like to highlight some of the activities implemented under this program.
