Iraqi Kurdistan

PMM continues medical support in Iraqi Kurdistan. In May, a mobile clinic with two doctors: a gynecologist and a pediatrician, a nurse and a pharmacist, started medical consultations in two internally displaced families camps - Baharka and Harsham, together taking care of about 6,000 residents. There is no other organization providing medical help in these camps.

In both camps, primary care centres will be opened, renovated and adapted to work, consisting of several so-called treatment units. They will include doctors' surgeries, analytical research point, pharmacy and patient registration.

In the Baharka and Qushtapa camps, dental units will be installed. There are 7,610 Syrian refugees living in Qushtapa who have not had access to a dentist for 4 years. Dental help will be directed to refugees and displaced Iraqi families.

A new mobile dental office will be purchased for Qushtapa camp. The equipment for the Baharka camp will be transported from the Alwand1 camp, where the work of the dental unit ended December 31, 2018. In July 2019 a Polish dentist, Katarzyna Błądek-Grzelczak, will come to mutual work with Iraqi dentists. In 2017 she worked at the hospital in Khanaqin and in the Alwand1 camp, so she perfectly knows the realities of work in Iraqi Kurdistan.
