Support for victims of the Islamic State association
The fighting that has been continuing since 2014 in northern and western Iraq has displaced over 3 million Iraqis. Almost half of them have sought refuge in Kurdistan and neighbouring regions. Kurds, Yezidis, Christians and Muslims — most of them fled to escape the rapid advances of the Islamic State organization.
Constantly exposed to violence and fear, they find them- selves in a desperate humanitarian situation: unsanitary conditions, lack of hygiene, extreme difficulty in getting access to health care, etc. Iraqis directly exposed to the conflict, population groups displaced within the country, refugees from Syria and host region populations are all direct or indirect victims of this conflict.
Public services are overloaded and under immense pressure. The health care system and access to health care facilities are severely compromised by the insecurity that reigns throughout the country, placing both displaced persons and host communities in danger.
