Through Tahaddi's health programs, we seek to be a welcoming place where families can receive medical and social care, and can be empowered to access the wider heath system.
The Tahaddi Health Center (THC) is located at the heart of the neighborhood of Hay El Gharbeh. The THC relies on a qualified team of doctors, a nurse, a psychologist and social workers to reach its goal of improved wellbeing.

Financial Aid and Referral Support Program
A social work team works hand-in-hand with medical clinicians to support families who are most at-risk, offering counseling and practical support. Working through an established network of partners, we are able to accompany patients on doctors' visits, act as advocates when hospitalization, referrals or external exams are requested, and provide financial assistance as needed.
Health Promotion Activities
As part of our commitment to prevention and empowerment, we conduct weekly health education sessions for women of the area. Groups of women gather in each other’s homes during the traditional morning coffee time to discuss health topics with our health promoter.
More formal sessions also take place at our center. Our nurse conducts post-natal visits to support new moms and provides regular visits to homebound patients.
Support for Syrian Displaced Families
Syrian refugee families are welcomed as patients at our clinic. Limited financial assistance is available to Syrian patients who are unable to cover the cost of medications, hospitalization and referrals to specialists.
We work in close coordination with services offered by the UN.
