United Nations High Commission for Refugees - IDIA

PhilMUN 2010 21

PhilMUN 2010 21 Conclusion The lack of proper public health in refugee camps is an issue that will require the consideration of both the technical aspects and basic principles in public health as will as the bigger political and social environment in which these refugees find themselves. The most immediate cause of poor public health is the lack of proper infrastructure, housing, water, sanitation, and healthcare services. The underlying cause of the problem can be found in the socioeconomic and political scene of the refugee camps, which is greatly influenced by the policies of host states. It is important to realize that organizations such as UNRWA are useful tools in implementing public health interventions and programs; however, their lack of sovereignty is limiting. The greatest implication of poor health will be translated into the decreased social wellbeing and productivity of refugees, which will ultimately determine the fate of any durable solution.
