Some words for the Reconstructive Surgery Program (RSP)
RSP was founded in 2006 in Aman of Jordan to treat people that were injured in wars and conflicts mainly from Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Palestine.
It is the base for Doctors Without Borders to treat victims of war who do not have the access at the necessary medical care they need.
It is housed at an 8-floor hospital, which includes 148 beds, 3 surgical rooms, physiotherapy departments, a microbiological laboratory and an entertainment area.
Apart from the orthopedic and plastic surgery, the RSP provides psychological and medical care, as well as a safe recovery space for adults and children that have experienced extreme violence.
A few words for 3D Printing Project
In 2017, within the framework of RSP, the MSF Foundation presented the Three-dimensional Printing Program (3D Printing Project) which was developed for the purpose of manufacturing prosthetic limbs. Over the past decade, the hospital in Aman has become a hub of medical innovation, offering a package of services with cutting edge solutions in medical challenges its patients are facing. It is a program that restores mobility, but also dignity to people, offering hope to all those who suffered from war.
