The Tahaddi Community Health Center (THC) is a small primary care center located in the heart of Hay al Gharbeh, an economically marginalized informal settlement located on the outskirts of Beirut, Lebanon. The mission of this center is to be a welcoming place where families who face economic and social hardship can receive free medical and social care, as well as guidance in accessing the wider health system. Tahaddi's clinical team works in close coordination with a social work and mental health providers. Tahaddi's aim is not only to provide clinical care but to work to the extent possible to dislodge some of the root causes of ill health through prevention programs and home visitation services. THC currently has approximately 2500 active patients. THC equally serves all families living in the area regardless of their ethnic or religious background. The majority of families in the neighborhood are of Lebanese background although of late there has been a considerable influx of Syrian refugees who have moved to the area in search of affordable housing.
