142. UNRWA. Annual Report of the Department of Health 1993. Amman, Jordan: UNRWA, 1994: 97 pp.

The report presents information on staffing, organization and budgeting of UNRWA during 1993. A special chapter presents an account of projects planned under the Peace Implementation Programme and coordination with Palestinian health authorities. The report focuses on successes in integrating special programs for control of non-communicable diseases such as diabetes mellitus, as well as achievements in the expanded program on immunization and maternal and child health program. Among these achievements was the introduction of family planning services as an integral part of mother and child health care program in all UNRWA health centers. Although the report emphasizes steps taken to improve the quality of care, it shows that quality is adversely affected by the high workload. The workload has not changed since 1992.
