In July 2017, IOCC opened a medical office in Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan. This is IOCC's first office in a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan, as the rest of our work is done in urban centers — where the majority of refugees live — in order to help both refugees and their host communities.

IOCC, working in partnership with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Medical Corps (IMC), as well as the Jordanian Syrian Refugee Affairs Directorate (SRAD), was able to establish these services in response to the needs of refugees with hearing, visual, and other disabilities. Often, refugees arrive at camps with pre-existing conditions that worsen without appropriate treatment; IOCC will work to address this, while also screening and diagnosing new cases and providing needed devices and support.
