In South Tehran, we run a range of medical services through a health facility located in the Darvazeh Ghar neighborhood, as well as mobile clinics. Our teams offer general health care, nursing care, mental health support, screening and testing for COVID-19, and treatment and referrals for hepatitis C and B, HIV, syphilis, and TB. We also provide midwifery and pre- and postnatal care.
In Mashhad, Iran’s second largest city, located near the border with Afghanistan, we continue to offer medical consultations and screenings for infectious diseases. We also provide counseling, social support, health education, and referrals to specialist health facilities through our clinic in Golshahr district, where most Afghans in the city have settled.
We provide treatment for hepatitis C to drug users in rehabilitation centers, and we have strengthened our mental health services by sending a psychologist to conduct consultations in Torbat-e Jam’s “guest city,” a government-run refugee settlement in Razavi Khorasan province.
In December 2022, we launched new activities across three health care centers in Kerman city, including general health care and rehabilitation of facilities that we work in. The aim is to fill gaps in services for the estimated 400,000 newly arrived and unregistered Afghan refugees.
