Lebanon: Agonizing choices: Syrian refugees in need of health care in Lebanon

By Amnesty International, , Index number: MDE 18/001/2014

More than three years after the start of the crisis in Syria, 2.8 million refugees are dispersed in Syria’s neighbouring countries. Lebanon hosts over one million Syrian refugees. This influx has taken an immense toll on Lebanon putting resources under enormous strain. This report focuses on some of the consequences for refugees in Lebanon of not having adequate access to health care. It seeks to highlight some of the challenges faced by Syrian refugees, and by Lebanon as a host country in coping with the crisis, while the international community shies away from its responsibilities.
