Support for basic medical care, improvement of hygiene conditions and medical education of the refugees, IDP's and local population of the Province of Diyala

The humanitarian crisis in Iraq remains one of the largest and most unstable in the world. The speed of relentless social displacement over the recent 3 years is unprecedented. In 2014, 2.5 million civilians were displaced in Iraq, 1 million people were forced to flee in 2015, and another 700 thousand were displaced in 2016. There are more than 1 million refugees and displaced persons in the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan. 20% of them live in camps set up by the Iraqi authorities and funded by UN humanitarian agencies. 80% of refugees found shelter in the ruins of houses and abandoned buildings in Kurdistan, mainly in villages located in the provinces surrounding the cities of Irbil and Sulaymaniyah. The refugees that live there need most urgently access to medical care, including emergency medical aid.
