The Johns Hopkins School of Public Health (JHSPH), in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Medair (Jordan), and the Lebanese American University have planned a research study to evaluate the effectiveness of multipurpose cash transfers (MPCs) provided by UNHCR to vulnerable Syrian refugee households outside of camps in Jordan and Lebanon in increasing access to health. In the absence of a well-designed research that assesses the effectiveness of MPCs on health in refugee settings, this study will examine the effects of MPCs on health-seeking behavior and health service utilization and provide evidence needed to inform use of cash transfer programs in both the current and future humanitarian responses.
