Refugees from North-Eastern Syria in Iraq
After years of armed conflict and instability, the health sector in Iraq is struggling to meet the dire needs.

Many health facilities that are still operating lack much-needed medical services and supplies and suffer a shortage of healthcare specialists.

The humanitarian needs in Iraq remain extremely high. More than a million people are still internally displaced and significant barriers are preventing them from returning to their homes; some of them having lived ‘temporarily’ in camps for years without adequate access to basic services. Thousands of displaced people who managed to return home desperately lack medical care and other basic services.

The COVID-19 outbreak in Iraq has exacerbated the country’s under-resourced healthcare system. 

Currently, our teams provide medical assistance in three Iraqi governorates.
