The number of patients visiting public hospitals and health centres has increased by 30% as a result of the Syrian crisis, Health Minister Ghazi Zaben said on Tuesday. Zaben added that the influx of refugees has placed pressure on the health sector, especially in governorates that host the largest number of Syrians. The minister’s remarks were made during a meeting with EU Ambassador to Jordan Andrea Fontana, to discuss several projects funded by the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis (EUTF Madad), the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
