International Medical Corps (IMC) is a global humanitarian nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief programs. IMC is carrying out medical relief services in several provinces of Afghanistan.
Since 2012 International Medical Corps Afghanistan unit is partnering with the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) to increase the capacity and presence of front-line emergency responders in remote, disaster-prone Eastern regions of Afghanistan. This program will build the skills of organizational staff, ANDMA/PMDC/Ministry of women Affairs and communities in disaster preparedness and response with the purpose of saving lives and reducing suffering during sudden-onset emergencies, be it natural or man-made. The current EPRA phase (phase-IV) of the project is closing on 31st July, 2015.
Recognizing the importance of documenting lessons-learned and best practices, particularly in the area of emergency preparedness and disaster risk reduction in Afghanistan, International Medical Corps will conduct internal annual evaluation of EPRA-4th Phase.
The overall objective is to evaluate the achieved results, implementation strategies and progress towards the project outcomes and document the lessons learnt and advice on emergency preparedness needs and gaps to be filled in future interventions.
