UNHCR uses Global Health Media videos to help teach essential newborn care in the Zaatari and Azraq Syrian refugee camps in Jordan. These camps have a combined population of over 100,000 people. Since the majority of midwives, community health workers, and mothers in the camps do not understand English, UNHCR has supported an initiative to translate and narrate a number of our videos in Arabic.
UNHCR selected videos they considered highest priority for their work. There are 25 videos in total, including: eight videos on newborn care, seven videos on the care of small babies, and 10 videos on breastfeeding (primarily those for mothers).
