MdM in Jordan


With the influx of refugees, the healthcare system is overburdened by high patient loads and faces shortage of medicines and vaccinations. The rise of non-communicable disease also puts a strain on the Jordanian healthcare system, where resources are lacking. While already coping with the lack of livelihood opportunities and stretched financial resources, Syria refugees outside camps have to cover part of their healthcare expenses since 2014, which is of concern for an already vulnerable population. Availability of mental health and psychosocial support services remains limited in Jordan. In particular, the offer of MHPSS services at community level in urban, rural and remote locations does not meet the needs of the population.

 Our response

MdM stopped operating in Jordan in 2016.
