Public health

UNHCR continues to partner with the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) to strengthen the health system and reinforce response capacity.

In 2020, as part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, UNHCR performed construction works and donated medical equipment, supplies and medicines to selected governmental hospitals including ICU ventilators, portable X-ray machines, patient monitors, defibrillators, beds and furniture in order to reach a total national capacity increase of 800 normal beds and 100 ICU beds depending on the development of domestic transmission.
