Our Jordan Refugee Response
Working with our local partner Jordan Health Aid Society, we provide both Iraqi refugees and vulnerable local populations in Jordan with primary health care services and mental health care and psychosocial support. We are also implementing the Healthy Lifestyle Campaign, a pilot behavior change communication project that aims to provide knowledge, motivation and practical skills for Iraqi refugees and vulnerable Jordanians to manage their health and prevent chronic diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension. Participating families attend Healthy Lifestyle intervention peer support groups, education sessions, health check-ups and three-day educational camps.
In addition, International Medical Corps gained valuable experience assisting large concentrations of urban refugees in early childhood development and psychosocial support activities in Jordan that have helped us better understand and meet the unique needs of refugees living in large cities.
Due to the ongoing conflict in Syria, thousands of Syrian refugees have crossed the border into Jordan and require emergency services. International Medical Corps has been providing primary health care and psychosocial services through static and mobile clinics for Syrian refugees. We will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and scale-up services as needed.
