To improve the well-being and health among the refugee and host communities in Cox's Bazar. Action Against Hunger will lead a consortium of 7 partners who will implement specific parts of the project. The project directly contributes to the ISCG Joint Response Plan and complements other projects being delivered by Consortium partners in Cox's Bazar. The project focuses on protection, equitable and non-discriminative access to services, specifically targeting the most vulnerable (women, children, pregnant/lactating women, those with disabilities, the elderly, GBV and conflict-affected survivors). HI will assess existing barriers preventing access to services and specific factors of vulnerability related to the context, in a participatory process, to inform the project's appropriate messaging, awareness raising and to plan an inclusive implementation of activities and delivery of services. These activities will include the provision of healthcare and nutrition services through 22 centres (including 13 multi service points, 3 maternity clinics, 24 satellite clinic teams and 24 mobile teams). Primary health care consultations and nutrition treatment for SAM children/adults and Reproductive Healthcare services will be given. Protection services will include information and awareness-raising sessions, individual and group psychological support, skill development and risk reduction activities, focusing on women and girls and children and youth. Inclusive education includes working with children with disabilities and their families to provide support and develop education plans. There will also be a team working to identify physical challenges and improve accessibility to schools e.g. ramps. To improve food security and livelihoods, there will be social safety net and grants to provide the host community families with dignity, preventing negative coping strategies. For shelter, there will be a distribution of NFI via vouchers and support for the construction of traditional shelters. WASH - New water points and ensuring the continued operation of water treatment plans and pipelines will reduce water scarcity. New latrines will be constructed and older ones will be maintained, with an ongoing focus on hygiene promotion. Logistical support will be provided to ensure the safety and security of goods, staff and beneficiaries.
