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

This report focuses on the consequences for Syrian refugees in Lebanon of not being able to access adequate health care. It does not intend to cover all aspects of the right to health for Syrian refugees; rather it exposes shortfalls in the health care system as one of the many serious issues faced by Syrian refugees in Lebanon, a country which is overburdened and under-resourced to sufficiently deal with the crisis.

This report focuses on the most recent restrictions introduced in January 2015, and examines the human rights impact of these restrictions coming on top of those previously imposed.
