More than two years after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world remains in crisis. Whether addressing continued vaccine inequity, caring for those displaced by conflict, including by the war in Ukraine, or confronting an unprecedented hunger and malnutrition crisis in East Africa, the IRC’s Health Unit supported the delivery of critical healthcare services to those most affected. Our ability to deliver quality services at scale, in the most difficult and hard to reach environments, provided a lifeline to the nearly 27 million people targeted by our health programs. 

The State of the Health Unit 2022 offers an overview of IRC health programming, research and innovation, and advocacy.
