REfugees Act and Communicate for Health (REACH): Using Technology to Increase Health Literacy and Health Care Access for Refugees in Turkey and Lebanon


​​DESCRIPTION: REACH is a regional initiative of CSD, which aims to bridge the gap in health literacy and health care access among refugee and local youth via digital health technologies in Turkey and Lebanon. Co-lead by Dr. Yanis Ben Amor and Dr. Ozge Karadag Caman, the project employs Community Based Participatory Action Research (CBPAR) framework, which has been recognized as a unique approach to conduct research with - rather than on - communities. Using CBPAR and implementation science methods, REACH aims to assess the impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs) on accessing reliable health information and available health services and to contribute to the limited scientific literature on ICT interventions for health in countries that host large refugee populations.​​ Read More.
