Today’s ceremony included the handover of a newly constructed Al Hadalat Medical Clinic to Royal Medical Services (RMS), one of the three medical facilities constructed under this project.

The project supported the provision of medical infrastructure and essential equipment to enhance JAF’s medical and health response in the North-Eastern border area.

This included building field trauma clinics at two company-level bases and a level one medical clinic at Al Hadalat base.

As part of the capacity building component, IOM supported the delivery of comprehensive trainings to enhance urgent trauma care skills, which were led by the Royal Medical Service (RMS) trainers.

The North-East border is geographically isolated and prone to emergencies, having a medical clinic nearby ensures a swift responses to address medical needs promptly, reducing the risk of complications and saving lives.

Therefore, this intervention primarily aimed at bolstering JAF's medical capabilities at the North-East border.

It is designed to ensure seamless and efficient delivery of emergency trauma care to individuals requiring urgent assistance at site.

“Our long-lasting partnership with the Jordanian Armed Forces has been a cornerstone in driving positive change, especially in the most remote areas where infrastructure development was crucial,” said H.E.

Mr. Othman Belbeisi, IOM Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa.

“The current project would strengthen the capacity for emergency trauma care; a key factor undermining JAF's efforts to maintain security on borders and combat illegal cross-border smuggling activities.

It also aims to ensure a timely and efficient delivery of emergency trauma care to those in need, including Syrian refugees and Jordanians living in border communities,” stated H.E.

Mr.OKUYAMA Jiro, Japanese Ambassador to Jordan.

The closing ceremony acknowledged the profound impact of the joint efforts of IOM, JAF and the Government of Japan.

Collectively, a strong foundation for the advancement of emergency medical services in the North-Eastern border area has been led, supporting the JAF's mission to provide life-saving care to those in need.
