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.

PhilMUN 2010 22 Discussion Questions • What is UNHCR’s role in administering proper public health? • How can the basic principles of public health be applied to an unusual setting such as a refugee camp? • How does proper public health relate to refugee empowerment and their improved livelihood? • What is the role of host states in ensuring proper public health in refugee camps? • How can public health projects in refugee camps receive proper funding and investment? • How can the infrastructure of refugee camps be improved within the boundaries of host states? • How does the socioeconomic and political scene in the Middle East influence the infrastructure and policies in refugee camps related to health? • What mechanisms and policies could be utilized to rehabilitate refugee camps? • How is public health relevant to the human rights of refugees?
