The Toll of Conflict on Sexual and Reproductive Health in Northwest Syria (Arabic)

March 14, 2023

Targeted violence against health care has impacted the availability of and access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care, including basic and specialized services. This has resulted in:SRH services are insufficient due to limited staff, facilities, equipment, supplies, and medication across northwest Syria.SRH care provision is limited, among other things, by the fact that many health care facilities have been built in, or relocated to, geographic areas far from the front lines, limiting access to SRH services for communities close to conflict zones. Because of the large population and demand in safer areas, these facilities experience significant overcrowding.In areas where SRH services are largely unavailable, respondents reported harmful coping practices, including postponing essential SRH visits and forgoing medication.When required SRH services are not available or practically inaccessible, there are far-reaching, negative consequences for women's health, including for both their psychosocial well-being and that of their children.The most marginalized people, including women residing in camps, those with a disability, those with limited income, and those married at a young age, are most adversely impacted by the paucity of SRH care.

Rapid Needs Assessment Report for Medical Devices in Healthcare Facilities (North-West Syria)

March 9, 2023

The recent devastating earthquakes in NW Syria, occurring after more than a dozen years of civil war, have left the healthcare system overwhelmed and in desperate need of repair. To determine the feasibility of intervention to assess, maintain and repair medical devices at regional and hospital levels, a rapid field assessment was conducted in NW Syria by Field Ready Türkiye's between 12th and 18th of February 2023. Having worked in that part of Syria since 2017, Field Ready carried out interviews, group discussions and carried out surveys and site visits to nine (9) hospitals. The main takeaways are that poor supply chains and the inability to replace parts have significantly reduce healthcare delivery and Field Ready can play a critical role in addressing the situation.

Hızlı İhtiyaç Analizi: Şubat 2023 Depreminin Türkiye'deki Suriyeli KOBİ'ler Üzerindeki Ani Etkisi

March 2, 2023

6 Şubat 2023'te, Türkiye'nin güneyinde meydana gelen bir dizi yıkıcı deprem, Türkiye ve Suriye'de 50.000'den fazla insanın ölümüne yol açtı. Son 100 yılda ülkede görülen en güçlü sarsıntı olan depremleri birkaç şiddetli artçı şok izledi. Türkiye'nin güneyindeki depremden etkilenen 10 ilde 500.000'den fazla bina çöktü ve 1,5 milyondan fazla insan evsiz kaldı. Etkilenenler arasında, afet bölgesinde yaşayan ve daha önce Suriye'de devam eden iç savaş nedeniyle yerinden edilmiş yaklaşık iki milyon Suriyeli mülteci de var.Building Markets'in daha önceki araştırmalarının ortaya koyduğu gibi, Suriyeliler girişimcilik becerilerini ve sermayelerini Türkiye'ye getirerek ağımızdaki 2.500'den fazla küçük ve orta ölçekli işletmeyi (KOBİ) kurdular; bunların %50'sinden fazlası Adana, Gaziantep, Hatay, Mersin ve Şanlıurfa illeri de dahil olmak üzere Türkiye'nin güneyindeki depremden etkilenen bölgelerde bulunuyor.Bu KOBİ'lerin birçoğu şüphesiz depremden etkilenmiş olsa da, işletmelerin iyileşmesine odaklanmak için birkaç önemli neden var:İşletme sahiplerinin, çalışanlarının ve ailelerinin acil ihtiyaçlarını karşılamak, böylece daha derin bir kırılganlık veya risk durumuna girmelerini engellemek.Depremde yıkılan bölgelerde çok ihtiyaç duyulan yardımların sağlanmasında onları desteklemek.İşletme sahipleri ve çalışanları için geçim kaynaklarının geri kazanılmasını desteklemek.Söz konusu bireysel işletmelerin faaliyet gösterdiği pazarların toparlanabilmesini sağlamak.Bu hızlı ihtiyaç analizi, depremin Suriyelilere ait ve Suriyelileri istihdam eden KOBİ'ler, onların ticari operasyonları ve en acil ihtiyaçları üzerindeki etkisini anlamayı amaçlamaktadır. Bu çalışma, Building Markets'in ve diğer paydaşların, depremin hemen ardından KOBİ sahiplerine, çalışanlarına ve ailelerine tam iş operasyonlarına devam etmelerine ve yardım çabalarına katkıda bulunmalarına yardımcı olmak için gerekli desteğe öncelik vermelerine yardımcı olacaktır.On February 6, 2023, a series of devastating earthquakes in southern Türkiye killed more than 50,00 people in the country and Syria.  The most powerful quakes in the country in the last 100 years have been followed by several violent aftershocks.

Türkiye/Syria: A human rights response to the 6 February earthquakes

February 23, 2023

The catastrophic earthquakes that devastated southeastern Türkiye and northern Syria on 6 February and again on 20 February require a committed and sustained global humanitarian response.To date, the combined death toll is over 46,000 and climbing. Hundreds of thousands have been left homeless and without shelter, food, potable water, and medical care. Thousands remain missing.Türkiye has invoked a state of emergency in the affected provinces. Aid provision in Syria has been slowed down and obstructed by political considerations and logistical difficulties that have eclipsed the need for an urgent and immediate response to people's needs in the northwest.In responding to a major crisis, there must be concerted efforts towards the promotion and protection of the human rights of everyone. These include:the right to lifeprotection against arbitrary detentionsecurity of personfreedom from torture and other ill-treatmentfreedom of expression and associationprotection for refugees and asylum seekers and protecting migrants' rightseconomic, social, and cultural rights – including access to housing, adequate nutrition, potable water, sanitation, healthcare, and aid without discrimination.

TÜRKİYE/SURİYE: ŞUBAT DEPREMLERİ HAKKINDA İNSAN HAKLARI ODAKLI BİR DEĞERLENDİRME

February 23, 2023

6 Şubat'ta ve 20 Şubat'ta Türkiye'nin güneydoğusunu ve Suriye'nin kuzeyini yıkıma uğratan korkunç depremler, kararlı ve devamlı küresel insani müdahale gerektiriyor. Bugüne kadar her iki bölgede kaydedilen toplam ölü sayısı 46 bini aştı ve bu sayı artmaya devam ediyor. Yüz binlerce insan evsiz ve barınma, gıda, içme suyu ve tıbbi bakımdan yoksun kaldı. Binlerce kişi hâlâ kayıp.Uluslararası Af Örgütü, depremlerden etkilenen herkese en derin üzüntülerini ifade etmekte ve böylesi zorlu koşullarda arama-kurtarma çalışmalarına katılan gönüllülerin ve ilk müdahale ekiplerinin yorulmak bilmeyen çabalarını takdir ve minnetle karşılamaktadır.Yardımlar ihtiyaç sahiplerine ağır ulaştı ve ilk depremlerin üzerinden iki haftadan uzun süre geçmişken iki ülkede de insanların ve toplulukların ihtiyaçları artmaya devam ediyor. Türkiye etkilenen illerde olağanüstü hâl ilan etti.1 Suriye'de, siyasi değerlendirmeler ve lojistik zorluklar yardım ulaştırma çabalarını yavaşlattı ve engelledi, deprem bölgesinde insanların ihtiyaçlarına acil ve hızlı yanıt verme gereğini gölgede bıraktı.Bu gibi kriz durumlarında insan hakları askıya alınamaz ve herkesin insan haklarının iyileştirilmesi ve korunması için koordineli çaba sarf edilmelidir. Yaşam hakkı, keyfi alıkonulmaya karşı koruma, kişi güvenliği, işkence ve diğer türde kötü muameleye maruz bırakmama, ifade ve örgütlenme özgürlüğü, mültecilere ve sığınmacılara uluslararası koruma sağlama ve sürdürme yükümlülüğü ve göçmenlerin haklarına riayet edilmesi olağanüstü hâllerde birkaç istisna dışında devletin başat taahhütleri olmayı sürdürmektedir. Yardımların dağıtılmasında da dahil olmak üzere barınma, yeterli beslenme, içme suyu, hijyen olanakları ve tıbbi bakıma erişim sağlanarak ekonomik, sosyal ve kültürel hakların korunması kritik önemdedir.Kadınlar, çocuklar, yerinden edilen kişiler, yaşlılar, engelliler, LGBTİ+'lar, etnik ve ırksal azınlıklar ve ötekileştirilen diğer gruplar genellikle doğal felaketleri de kapsayan kriz durumlarında artan zorluklarla karşılaşır ve ayrımcılığa, ırkçı saldırılara ve istismara karşı özel korumaya ihtiyaç duyarlar. Doğal afetlerin yarattığı zor durumlarda yardım ulaştırma çabaları uyruk, etnik köken, din, göçmenlik statüsü ve siyasi görüş temelinde ayrımcılık dahil hiçbir türde ayrımcılık yapılmadan hayata geçirilmelidir.Afet müdahalelerine insan hakları merkezli bir yaklaşım, insani yardımın adil ve etkili bir şekilde sağlanmasını kolaylaştırabilir ve hükümetlerden, ayrımcılık yasağı dahil uluslararası insan hakları standartlarına ne ölçüde uydukları hususunda hesap sorabilir. Devletler, hukuka uygun olarak bağış toplayan ve/veya afet yardımı dağıtan hiçbir grubu ayrımcılıkla hedef almamalı ve bu yardım fonları ve malzemelerine keyfi şekilde el koymamalıdır.Türkiye ve Suriye'de insan hakları bakımından yaşanan zorluklar aşağıda açıklanmaktadır ve bunlar, Uluslararası Af Örgütü'nün, 2010'da Haiti'deki deprem felaketi dahil doğal afetler ve bu gibi kriz durumlarında insan haklarının korunması için en iyi uygulama ilkeleri hakkındaki geçmiş çalışmalarına dayanmaktadır.The catastrophic earthquakes that devastated southeastern Türkiye and northern Syria on 6 February and again on 20 February require a committed and sustained global humanitarian response.To date, the combined death toll is over 46,000 and climbing.
