Established shortly after the 1948 Arab-Israeli confl ict, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency UNRWA provides education, health and social services to Palestine refugees. Over 5 million Palestine refugees across the Middle East (West Bank, Gaza, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria) are eligible for UNRWA services.
However, the ongoing crisis in Syria poses substantive threats to UNRWA systems: thousands of Palestine refugees have been displaced once again – internally to different areas within Syria or to neighbouring Jordan and Lebanon.
Independent research was carried out by Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh and the American University of Beirut into the how the UNRWA systems in Syria, Lebanon and Jordan managed to deliver health services in the context of the ongoing crisis.
