Jordan: Voices from Ramtha

For more than four years, Médecins Sans Frontières ran an emergency trauma surgical programme in Ramtha, northern Jordan, which treated peopled wounded in the prolonged conflict in Syria.

Although the conflict continues, the number of war-wounded patients referred to Jordan from hospitals in southern Syria has plummeted significantly since July 2017. This sharp drop in the number of patients left the MSF facility semi-vacant and rendered MSF’s presence in Ramtha hospital no longer viable.

In view of this change, MSF took the difficult decision to close the Ramtha project.

MSF staff, national and international, have come together to reflect on their time working in this project in their own words and voices.
