This is a descriptive study undertaken in one of the primary healthcare clinics run by UNRWA staff in Amman, Jordan, for the management of hypertension in Palestine refugees

Cohort analysis for Palestine refugees with hypertension in an UNRWA run-primary health-care clinic in Jordan is feasible and valuable for managing this condition and needs wider application for other non-communicable diseases. The good results from cohort monitoring and evaluation should ultimately lead to improved patient outcomes and better health status.
