Providing Primary and Gynaecological Health Care in Erbil and Dohuk Governorates

Iraq has 36 million inhabitants, of whom 3.1 million are internally displaced persons. 11 million Iraqis, including 5.1 million children, require humanitarian assistance. Iraq’s ongoing humanitarian crisis is one of the largest and most unpredictable worldwide. The humanitarian situation will not improve much unless the families rebuild their sources of income and bolster their households. The Autonomous Region of Kurdistan is home to around 7.6 million people, including 2 million refugees and internally displaced persons living in temporary camps (20%) and hosted by the local community (80%). The humanitarian crisis has a great impact on those regions, particularly on education and medical care.
