With funding from the government of Japan, UNOPS will deliver a specialized magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner to help diagnose pediatric patients at the Queen Rania Hospital for Children in Jordan. The hospital is a critical facility that provides tertiary care and is operated by the Royal Medical Services (RMS) of the Jordanian Armed Forces.

Jordan’s healthcare system continues to be under increased pressure to deliver an overwhelming amount of health services. This new assistance will enhance the operational capacity of the Royal Medical Services and help provide high-quality and critical health services, particularly to children in need.

“Building on our long-standing partnerships with the government of Japan, UNOPS is proud to continue to support the Royal Medical Services in implementing the much-needed health sector services to further strengthen its operational capacity,” said Muhammad Usman Akram, Director of UNOPS Multi-Country Office in Amman.

This project was announced as another project funded by the government of Japan was successfully handed over to the Royal Medical Services.

“We hope that strengthening RMS’s health facilities will significantly contribute to addressing several key challenges in Jordan’s health sector, securing equitable access and improving the quality of healthcare for both Jordanians and Syrian refugees,” said H.E. Okuyama Jiro, Ambassador of Japan to Jordan.
