International Medical Corps is a global, humanitarian, non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief and development programs.
Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, non-political, non-sectarian organization. Its mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in underserved communities worldwide. By offering training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at highest risk, and with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance.
Since 2004, the International Medical Corps has been providing targeted, integrated, and comprehensive live-saving health and nutrition interventions benefiting IDPs, host communities, nomads refugees and returnees throughout Central, South, and West Darfur states. IMC implements primary health care, nutrition, and WASH programs, supporting 66 communities with integrated interventions.
IMC also works to build the capacity of the health work force and of the community to ensure project activities are built into long-terms strategic planning and that the workforce will have the needed capacity to continue humanitarian interventions in the target communities. Surveys carried by IMC have shown poor child care practices, high prevalence of malnutrition and poor uptake of maternal and child health care services including reproductive health.
A coverage survey carried out in Bilel County by IMC indicated low coverage for Nutrition care and treatment services (single coverage of 55.6% for OTP and 65.6% for TSFP). Through this consultancy service, International Medical Corps plans to understand and determine the barriers to effectiveness of services at community and health facility level. The results will also act as baseline information and the resulting recommendations will be incorporated in the current program implementation strategy.
To effectively plan and implement a Barrier Analysis survey and use the results to inform their behaviour change strategy.
