Project Overview
Medair is currently implementing health and nutrition projects.

The current health project consists of one primary health post in a relocation area and 3 mobile medical teams who have the capacity to carry out rapid medical response to natural disasters (monsoon rains flooding/landslides, possible cylclones) and/or disease outbreaks.
