Providing the entire equipment for the GP office in the Clinic run by Caritas Jordan in Mafraq

Mafraq is a town in north-western Jordan, approx. 23 km from the Syrian border. It has received a huge number of Syrian refugees who fled from the conflict in their home country. According to UN data, Mafraq in December 2015 was inhabited by over 76,400 registered Syrian refugees (a majority—at around 60%—of the town’s population at the time the project was being implemented). The project targeted mostly this group. The project also benefits the local Jordanian population, which feels the burden of hosting high refugee numbers.

The project will address the problem of limited access to health care services in the town of Mafraq, Jordan. Its direct objective will be to ensure access for the local Jordanian population and Syrian refugees to general practitioner services.

Caritas Jordan is to be the project’s local partner. At the Embassy’s request, the partner will procure complete equipment for a general practitioner’s surgery at a clinic run by Caritas Jordan. It will then repair the room allotted for the clinic and install the purchased diagnostic equipment (including a USG device) and other equipment.

The project will benefit the residents of Mafraq, where the general practitioner’s surgery is based. With the equipment purchased as part of the project, a general practitioner in the Mafraq clinic will be able to provide medical advice and first aid also in the field of gynaecology and obstetrics.

The project is forecast for implementation between 15 and 23 December 2015.

The project was carried out in 15–23 December 2015 in Mafraq.

The project addressed the issue of a lack of access to healthcare services among Mafraq residents. Its direct objective was to ensure access to general practitioner services for the local Jordanian population and the Syrian refugee community. The project equipped the general practitioner’s office with advanced diagnostic equipment, including a high-resolution ultrasound scanner, and other necessary devices.

The project outcome goes far beyond primary health care services. The general practitioner at the Caritas Jordan clinic runs a practice that offers services beyond the scope of GP’s, including basic specialist paediatric and obstetric care.
