A look inside a mobile medical clinic
28 January 2015 – On 11 December 2014, the World Health Organization (WHO) and World Food Programme (WFP) delivered eight mobile medical clinics to Erbil. These urgently needed clinics were immediately deployed to parts of Iraq and the Kurdistan region of Iraq. The vehicles have been purpose-built to address the health needs of displaced populations residing in places with limited access to health care services – in camps, informal settlements and urban areas across the country. The clinics were made possible through the support of the Government of Saudi Arabia and are the first of their kind to be brought to Iraq to accelerate response efforts.
