The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS)
Strengthening health services across Jordan
In partnership with the government of Japan, UNOPS is working with the Royal Medical Services of Jordan to improve critical health services across the country.
With Jordan currently hosting a large number of Syrian refugees combined with a growing population, the country's healthcare system is under pressure.
With $1.7 million in funding from the government of Japan, UNOPS will procure essential medical equipment to strengthen the Royal Medical Services (RMS) and improve critical health services for people across the country.
“Responding to immediate humanitarian needs and providing assistance for social stabilization are the top priorities for Japan’s development cooperation policy in Jordan,” said H.E. Okuyama Jiro, Ambassador of Japan to Jordan.
From Amman, UNOPS supports the government of Jordan and other partners throughout the Middle East to help improve livelihoods and respond to ongoing humanitarian and development issues.
“We hope that our assistance will ease the burden of Jordan in offering essential services to vulnerable people,” he added.
“The support by the government of Japan and UNOPS will help RMS facilities continually improve the quality of the medical care they provide to those who need it most, when they need it most,” said Brigadier General Dr. Yousef Zureikat, Director of the Royal Medical Services.
UNOPS will procure renal dialysis units and medical equipment for the selected health facilities.
This project complements earlier interventions that have enhanced the capacity of the Royal Medical Services to respond to increased demand for health services in Jordan.
