Doctors of the World works in various camps spread throughout the city of Dohuk in Iraqi Kurdistan. In the Daoodia and Chamesku camps, our medical teams provide primary healthcare, sexual and reproductive healthcare, pediatric care, psychosocial support, nutritional screening and educational health programs to displaced and highly vulnerable people.
In 2015, further south in the governorate of Kirkuk, Doctors of the World set up three mobile clinics to respond to the major influx of new IDPs and the needs of host residents. Primary healthcare (including sexual and reproductive health) and psychosocial support are provided.
In 2016, Doctors of the World expanded its interventions in the governorate of Nineveh. We now have a medical team on hand to quickly and effectively respond to the needs of the people fleeing Mosul.
