A Palestinian woman has her child checked at an UNRWA-run clinic in the Shati refugee camp, Gaza City, Jan. 14, 2018.
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) launched on Monday a platform for the registration of monthly medication requests for Palestinian refugees with hypertension and diabetes.
Registered Palestinian refugees who are patients at UNRWA’s 25 health centres located throughout Jordan will benefit from the measure.
In a statement, the Agency called on Palestinian refugees to update their personal and contact information through the platform so that UNRWA employees can reach out to them and deliver their monthly medications if they do not arrive on the set date.
The platform can be reached through the following link: https://ehealth.unrwa.org/emed/
More than 2 million Palestine refugees registered with UNRWA live in Jordan.
There are ten recognized Palestine refugee camps throughout the country, which accommodate nearly 370,000 Palestine refugees. Jordan hosts the largest number of Palestine refugees of all of the UNWRA fields.
The majority of Palestine refugees have sought humanitarian assistance in Jordan, where they continue to suffer from abject poverty and live in a precarious legal status.
