  • Health: Improve access to specific services for the most vulnerable people whose physical and functional and/or psychological integrity is compromised, through the provision of physical rehabilitation and Mental Health & Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) services and support to local stakeholders;
  • Social Inclusion: Ensure equal access to essential services, protection and basic needs for all conflict-affected populations, including persons with disabilities, and support to inclusive economic practices and interventions.
