Sierra Leone

IHP currently work with two partners in Sierra Leone - Life for African Mothers (see below) and International Medical Corps. IHP have been supporting partners in Sierra Leone since before the Ebola outbreak in 2014, getting vital emergency supplies to IMC in disaster response and equipping the Sierra Leonean diaspora community with medicines for medical outreach through our Essential Health Pack Programme.

Somalia

IHP is supporting our partner International Medical Corps to provide medical assistance across 4 regions of Somalia facing the most acute conditions, through medical centres and mobile clinics that reach remote communities with life-saving care. Some of the medicines have been used to support those responding to recent terrorist attacks, and also equip the medical response to the ongoing drought conditions and disease outbreaks.

South Sudan

IHP has worked in a variety of ways in South Sudan, most recently with a consortium with 3 other partner organisations to respond to the crisis in South Sudan delivering 550,000 treatments of essential medicines and medical supplies to support the work of our implementation partners World Relief and International Medical Corps. The projects in South Sudan will be continuing for the next two years.  

Ethiopia

IHP partners with HelpAge International in Ethiopia. HelpAge specialises in supporting elderly populations. IHP supports HelpAge’s health programmes by supplying essential primary healthcare medicines, such as diabetes medicines and antihypertensives. We are also working alongside our partner International Medical Corps in Trigray, the northern region of Ethiopia, which is at the epicentre of an ongoing conflict by supplying displaced civilians, fleeing the fighting, with the essential healthcare they need. 

Malawi

IHP supplies essential primary healthcare medicines, such as antibiotics and antihypertensives, to partner organisations working in Malawi. We work with World Child Cancer in Malawi to improve diagnosis, treatment and support for children with cancer, and their families.
