The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has commenced construction work on a health centre in Amman’s Zohour area, with the project being funded by the Saudi Fund for Development (SFD).

According to information published on UNRWA’s website, construction work on the health centre started late in July 2019 and the facility is expected to be operational by August 2020.

Once completed, the health centre will replace the existing facility located in “congested premises” and will introduce UNRWA’s Family Health Team.

Upon being operational, the health centre will be equipped with e-health systems to create and store electronic files in a bid to replace the existing paper-based medical records.

Commenting on the contribution of SFD, director of operations in Jordan for UNRWA, Mohammed Adar, said: “We are very grateful to SFD and the people of Saudi Arabia for this generous contribution, which will ensure provision of high quality healthcare services to Palestine refugees in Jordan.”

The SFD has also funded a public school project in Bahrain, which has been built by Bahraini-Saudi Arabian joint venture of Al Moayed and Nasma Contracting.
