UMR works with its partner IMANA to provide ambulatory medical care to Rohingya refugees seeking safety in Cox’s Bazar-currently the largest refugee camp in the world. We are one of the very few medical teams authorized by the Bangladeshi government, which allows us to treat young children who would otherwise suffer from easily preventable diseases such as the flu which are lethal in camp settings. We coordinate with Bangladeshi NGOs for medical staff and logistics support to gain access to the internal parts of the camp. This project is coordinated in conjunction with UN health cluster meetings and volunteers physicians contracted through IMANA.
This project has been running since 2017 and has served over 40,000 patients.
