needs_assessment.single.needsDescription
The four hospital-ERU National Societies (Canada, Finland, Germany and Norway) should base this deployment on a matrix-managed consortium approach together with Jordanian Red Crescent and the International Federation. The deployment should aim to offer minimum medical services on July 15th 2013, and scale up the staffing of the hospital in line with camp growth, up to the budgeted maximum capacity. Instead of a rotating model of responsibility between National Societies, it is recommended that the consortium is fully integrated from the beginning of the project, to ensure maximal impact on resource mobilization through joint and synchronized communications and public relations actions. Jordanian Red Crescent should be an equal member of the consortium.

needs_assessment.single.mainFindings
The project proposes the deployment of a modified referral ERU hospital, with an initial capacity of 60 beds for 13 months (phase 1) and the possibility to expand for 26 months in total (phase 2), both with the option to expand to 130 beds, based on the growth of the camp. It is recommended that this deployment be undertaken by a consortium of the hospital ERU National Societies together with the JRCS and under the coordination of IFRC. The budget for this deployment is estimated at 9,670,491 CHF for the 13 months of phase 1, and an additional 6,437,573 for phase 2 (60 beds); expanding to 130 beds would mean an additional CHF 750,000 per year4. These costs will be slightly lower if a fully-funded logistics ERU is deployed to support the operation.
