Silent killers: Treating chronic diseases among Syrian and Jordanian patients

"Even those who've managed to dodge bullets can't escape fatal diseases". MSF launched a non-communicable diseases (NCDs) project in December 2014 in two clinics located in the northern Jordanian governorate of Irbid, close to the Syrian borders. The project offers free-of-charge medical treatment to Syrian refugees living in host communities and vulnerable Jordanians who are suffering from chronic diseases; such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma, cardiovascular diseases (CVD), and chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD).
