Home-based care in Burj el-Barajneh refugee camp, Beirut.
More than 1.5 million Syrians have fled into Lebanon since the conflict began in 2011, making Lebanon and Jordan the countries hosting the largest proportion of refugees in the world.

Despite the efforts of the Lebanese Ministry of Public Health in supporting primary and secondary healthcare for refugees, the cost of consultations, laboratory tests, and medication remains a barrier for a significant number of refugees.

This reality has prompted us to providing medical assistance to Syrian refugees and vulnerable communities in Lebanon. We work in the north of Lebanon, the Bekaa valley, south Beirut and Saida, offering free, high quality primary healthcare.

Our teams provide treatment for acute and chronic diseases, reproductive services, mental health support and health promotion activities. Teams also run mother and child health centres across the country.

MSF is currently responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in Lebanon.
