how can "van " be translated in this sentence?

the sentence is: de wetenschappers roepen ziekenhuizen op om zich bij de zorg voor asielzoekers hier buwust van te zijn. it seems that "van" here is not the preposition for seperable verb, and i really do not know what role "van" is palying in this sentence. thanks in advance!

It is past of 'bewust zijn' -> "bewust zijn van". It's part of the English translation as well: 'to be aware of'.
