Healthy Community Clinics for NCDs Control in Jordan

Commitment by

Royal Health Awareness Society

In 2015, the Royal Health Awareness Society (RHAS) and its partners committed to scaling its Healthy Community Clinic (HCC) program to 12 centers across Jordan to serve both Syrian refugees in host communities and vulnerable Jordanians. RHAS will identify regions in Jordan with high levels of poverty and which are also host communities of Syrian refugees and will implement the HCC program, which includes capacity building and training for Ministry of Health staff and medical supplies for testing patients with non-communicable diseases (NCDs), in national health care clinics and hospitals. RHAS will prioritize clinics and hospitals in the North of the country, which are running beyond capacity as a result of the influx of refugee patients. As a result, RHAS will help 4,000 patients, at least 40% of whom are refugees, to monitor and treat their NCDs and prevent complications. This will address the growing burden of NCDs in Jordan, a national priority, as well as complement the Government of Jordan’s extension of national health care options for Syrian refugees.
