This project seeks to improve the health status of refugees and asylum seekers in Jordan (Syrian, Iraqi, and other nationalities) through delivering quality and equitable primary comprehensive secondary and tertiary/life-saving healthcare services

By mid-November 2017, Jordan has hosted 655,065 registered Syrian refugees. The majority of Syrian refugees in Jordan reside outside official camps with substandard conditions in urban and rural areas of Jordan. 80,000 of these refugees resided in Zaatari.

Urban Syrian refugees access to primary healthcare at MoH centers has remained constrained by possession of valid ID  and MoI documents and charges applied on such services. Further constrains were addressed in late April 2015 by MoH modification of the none-insured Jordanian price list; the price list according to which Syrian refugees pay for MoH services

An additional approach to support refugees access to healthcare was “Cash Assistance to Facilitate Access to Health Services among Syrian Refugees”; Throughout different actors of the health sector/Jordan, cash assistance to facilitate access to MoH affiliating health services is being planned and strongly endorse, given significant anticipated financial sparing that would be allocated to serve larger refugee figure at different levels of healthcare.
