Gallery: Medical care on the frontlines in Iraq

This mini photo essay depicts the daily lives of Iraq’s internally displaced people (IDPs) stranded between the governorates of Erbil and Ninewa in camps and communities located only a dozen or so kilometres away from the city of Mosul, the stronghold of the Islamic State group (IS). It showcases the suffering of the IDPs and the efforts undertaken by MSF teams in the frontline regions of Hawira and Debaga to alleviate people's sorrow.
