Jordan hosts over 700,000 refugees, according to the UNHCR, many of whom reside in camps or have settled in the country.

Refugees endure extremely limited access to healthcare in Jordan. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent economic downturn in the country have significantly affected Jordanians and refugees alike.

Our reconstructive surgery hospital in Amman treats war-wounded patients and victims of violence coming from countries such as Palestine, Syria, Iraq and Yemen. The hospital provides life-changing reconstructive surgery for those inflicted with burns, gun shots and other war injuries, while also providing physiotherapy and mental health support.

In addition, our teams provide medical consultations for non-communicable diseases (NCD) in Irbid and Ramtha, northern Jordan. We also deliver NCD medication to people on a daily basis through home visits, while mental health consultations are carried out in-clinic or remotely.

Our reconstructive surgery programme in the capital, Amman, was first established in 2006 to treat people injured in the Iraq War.

With a high level of medical expertise, surgical specialisation, extensive facilities and a holistic approach to care, the hospital is a regional base for the treatment of patients with significantly complicated injuries – primarily from Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Palestine – who could not be treated in their home countries.

The programme provides life-changing reconstructive surgery and rehabilitative care for people with orthopaedic injuries, burns, gunshot wounds and other conflict-related injuries, as well as physiotherapy and mental health support.

In 2022, we returned to our usual level of admissions, following a short period in 2021 when we transformed a part of the hospital to assist with the Ministry of Health's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the year, we also focused on enhancing our regional network, to ensure patients’ continuity of care in their home countries after discharge from the hospital, through follow-up consultations and continued physiotherapy.
