Health in Lebanon

01 January 2011

UNRWA’s goal is to ensure universal access to quality comprehensive services for Palestine refugees, prevent disease and promote family health. Primary Health Care remains the backbone of the Agency’s Health Programme. However, given the limited access of Palestine refugees to public health care in Lebanon, and in the absence of health insurance for 95% of the refugee population, UNRWA Lebanon goes beyond its usual role by absorbing the costs of secondary and tertiary health care incurred by refugees.
