This mapping took place during a time of turmoil within the Eastern Mediterranean Region, with ongoing conflict in several areas including Syria, Iraq and Yemen. Now approaching its sixth year, the Syrian conflict has forced well over 4.7 million of the country’s citizens to take refuge in neighboring countries. To date, it is estimated that over 639,704 displaced Syrians reside in Jordan,1 while government sources estimate an even higher number.2 Exposure to violence, loss and displacement, in addition to social and psychological stressors after displacement, as well as pre-existing MHPSS problems, have various implications on the MHPSS sub-sector and services in Jordan.

The assessment took place between the months of November 2015 to January 2016. The estimated data collection timeframe was initially two weeks; however, the deadline was extended twice to accommodate additional inputs by agencies.
