Through years of armed conflict and instability, health care in Iraq is doing its best to satisfy a desperate range of needs. Many health facilities are insufficiently supplied, and suffer from a lack of specialists.

MAGNA teams are currently providing health care in Darkar in northern Iraq.
Overview of the Iraq Crisis
The humanitarian needs in Iraq remain extraordinarily great. More than a million people remain internally displaced, and significant obstacles prevent them returning home; some lived many years in camps “temporarily”, with no standard access to basic services. Thousands of the displaced who have managed to get home are desperately lacking in health care and other basic services.
The outbreak of COVID-19 in Iraq has further weakened the health care system in this country so lacking in resources.
In 2019 MAGNA continued providing health care through a reproductive health team, and supported the material clinic of Al Batool Hospital in Mosul, Ninewa province, one of the most affected parts of Iraq in the aftermath of the ISIS conflict.
