Six years into the Syrian crisis, about 5 million Syrians have sought refuge in neighbouring countries. Jordan alone currently hosts around 1.4 million Syrian refugees of which more than 665,000 are registered with UNHCR. Inevitably, the situation has added to the strain on Jordan’s infrastructure, resources, and economy and women are disproportionately impacted. They – both refugees and vulnerable Jordanians – face challenges in accessing social and economic support services and economic opportunities such as health care, social spaces and transportation. This study aims to increase the understanding of the impact of the crisis on women’s access to basic services.
