Multi-purpose Cash Transfers and Health Among Vulnerable Syrian Refugees in Lebanon

6 August 2020

This briefing sheet summarizes findings from a research study conducted from May 2018 through July 2019 to evaluate the impact of MPC on health care-seeking and expenditures by Syrian refugees in Lebanon. The study compared approximately 173 households receiving multipurpose cash transfers (MPC) from UNHCR with 444 control households not receiving MPCs for the study’s duration. Results reveal that while MPC showed some positive effects, findings were mixed and MPC appears insufficient on its own to address health utilization and expenditures.
