Damascus, 12 September 2014 – WHO, together with the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, has delivered medical supplies in hard-to-reach locations in the Daraa and Rural Damascus governorates in Syria. Both governorates have been experiencing acute shortages of life-saving treatments and basic medical supplies, with over half of their health facilities severely damaged since the onset of the conflict in 2011. In 2014, WHO has provided medical supplies to support over 8 million people in Syria.
