Supporting Jordan’s Health Sector in cooperation with the European Union
On July 17, 2019, the European Union (EU), the Ministry of Health and UNOPS formally launched a project to improve Jordan’s health sector.
The 10-million-euro contribution by the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis (EUTF Madad), will support the expansion and equipping of the emergency departments in three hospitals to meet the increasing health needs of the host communities and Syrian refugees in Jordan. The three hospitals, Jamil Tutunji in the Sahab district of Amman, Ramtha Hospital in Irbid, and Ruweished Hospital in Mafraq will also receive three fully equipped ambulances to improve efficiency and reach of healthcare services. With the support of the EU, UNOPS will also design and construct the new emergency departments, deliver the medical equipment, and design and construct photovoltaic (PV) systems to provide the needed electricity in a sustainable and innovative manner.
