Maternity unit in Domeez Camp, Iraq

MSF's new maternity unit in Domeez camp, Iraq

Just a few weeks after opening its doors for the first time on August 4, the maternity unit in Domeez refugee camp, in northern Iraqi Kurdistan, is crowded with Syrian women, many of them bearing children. All have chosen to take advantage of a range of maternity services – from antenatal check-ups to postnatal vaccinations – provided by staff who are themselves refugees.
