Nivedita Monga, IRC Jordan Country Director, expressed the organization's unwavering commitment to supporting Jordan's public health sector. She highlighted that the IRC has already aided nearly 120,000 individuals through their health projects since 2019. In partnership with the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders, they tirelessly work to strengthen the national health systems to better address the health needs of both Jordanians and refugees within the country.

Meanwhile, Faisal Makahleh, Director of Mafraq Public Health Directorate, believes that this expansion will not only enhance the services offered to the community but also alleviate the burden on other departments within the center and raise public health awareness among the community.

Since 2019, IRC's health projects have benefited nearly 120,000 Jordanian and refugee patients in hosting communities, as well as in Azraq and Za'atari refugee camps. The IRC has also conducted training for nearly 300 MOH staff to support health services in the Kingdom and supplied equipment to 22 Public Health Centers in Mafraq and Ramtha.
