Safe and healthy eating in Jordan
UNRWA health staff are using World Health Day 2015 to raise awareness about the importance of ensuring that food on peoples’ plates is safe to eat.
Reduced incidence of foodborne and waterborne diseases among Palestine refugees in recent decades is no excuse for complacency, as unsafe food can cause more than 200 diseases, and kills an estimated 2 million people around the world each year.
Community outreach activities, such as those held on World Health Day, are part of the health services UNRWA provides to Palestine refugees. All UNRWA services, including health care, are funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions; the largest single country donor is the Government of the United States.
