The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has launched the Universal Health Coverage project. Around 150,000 poor people will benefit from free healthcare coverage.

The project is financed by MoPH ($6 million) and the World Bank ($15 million).

Implementation of the project will start in the next few months and will last three years. The funds will be transferred to 75 accredited primary healthcare centers in various regions. The healthcare centers, in collaboration with NGOs and municipalities, will provide accessible, affordable and quality care services.

Beneficiaries will be required to pay an amount not exceeding two dollars to gain the health services.

The program will focus on villages that host Syrian refugees.
