With the presence of more than 1.2 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon which is a very large number equal to a quarter of the entire population of Lebanon, and with the Syrian displacement to Lebanon from nearly ten years to the present day due to the war, great burdens and pressures have been placed on the healthcare system in Lebanon. The sector has prominent gaps, especially at the level of coverage, which leaves hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees deprived of basic health care services, especially since most of the displaced Syrians in Lebanon are concentrated in the poorest host communities in areas such as “Akkar, Bekaa and Ersal” which are already suffering from a lack of services.
