The United Nations Relief and Work Agency for Palestinian Refugee (UNRWA) has significantly improved the health of Palestinian refugees in the West Bank, Gaza, and other parts of the Middle East; but when it comes to chronic diseases, the refugees can’t always leave the camps for treatments. Doctors and nurses are often not able to enter the camps because of frequent closures and checkpoints. Image
