During the hostilities in Kosova (1996-1999), the Serbian military engaged in state-sanctioned violence against the people of Kosova. Hundreds of thousands of Kosovars were expelled from their homes in an ethnic cleansing campaign, and thousands were killed. Europe had not seen such a large movement of refugees since the Second World War. When an agreement to end the hostilities was signed in June 1999, there occurred an unprecedented massive return of refugees to Kosova. The first ICACBR project, from 1999-2000, focussed its attention on Kosova, and the population in transition in Albania.

This project built on ICACBR's previous project in Kosova. It was headed by the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) and the Departments of Health and Education, and aims to re-establish basic health care services and reform Kosova's health care and education sector.
