Ukraine Humanitarian Assistance Response Program (UHARP)

2022 - 2023

Millions of people have been affected by the conflict in Ukraine, which continues to threaten the lives, health and well-being of people who have fled besieged areas and are now internally displaced, particularly older people and people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ people and people who were already living in situations of poverty before the conflict began.

In March 2022, members of FHI 360’s Crisis Response team went to eastern and southern Ukraine to provide humanitarian services and identify gaps in various areas of humanitarian response, including protection monitoring, support services for survivors of gender-based violence (GBV) and mental health and psychosocial support services.

To address these gaps, FHI 360 is partnering with HealthRight International, Ukrainian government ministries and other humanitarian organizations to implement the Ukraine Humanitarian Assistance Response Program (UHARP), which will provide and ensure access to health and protection services, including support and specialized care for survivors of all forms of GBV; case management, training and mentoring for health care providers; and referrals to other lifesaving services.

Another aspect of the UHARP is strengthening the national health system’s capacity to respond to the increased needs that have arisen from the conflict. In close partnership with regional governments and health systems, FHI 360 will identify and fill gaps in health care systems, focusing on pharmaceuticals and other medical commodities, as well as noncommunicable diseases. In areas where the health system may be overwhelmed due to sudden population movements, FHI 360 will directly support primary health care systems by setting up mobile clinics, which will remain on standby throughout the duration of the project and will be mobilized upon request for support from national or subnational health authorities.
