Iraq: 425,000 people have fled west Mosul since February

30 May 2017

While MSF continues to provide lifesaving emergency and surgical care to men, women and children wounded in the ongoing battle for Mosul, northern Iraq, our teams are now extending their response in order to cover gaps in hospital care, left by the severe destruction of the local health system.

MSF is currently working in six medical facilities in and around Mosul, providing lifesaving emergency and surgical care, including mother and child health care as well as providing long term post-operative care to those in need of follow up and rehabilitation following major surgery. The teams are also providing care for children suffering malnutrition, as well as primary healthcare and mental healthcare in the newly established camps for people fleeing Mosul.
