Mosul : Qayyarah hospital
Accessing healthcare is a daily challenge for thousands of people in Iraq.

After years of armed conflict and instability, the health sector in Iraq is struggling to get back on its feet. Many health facilities have been destroyed and those still operating lack medical supplies and qualified health workers.

The humanitarian needs in Iraq remain extremely high. Many cities retaken from the Islamic State group are severely damaged or destroyed. Thousands of people returning home confront a desperate lack of access to medical care and other services.

Our teams are currently responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in Iraq.
