WHO supports overwhelmed primary health care centre in Mosul with lifesaving medicines and medical supplies
4 December 2016 – WHO has successfully delivered life-saving medicines and medical supplies inside Mosul city. The shipment, enough to treat almost 13 000 patients, includes chronic disease medicines, antibiotics, medicines and supplies to treat trauma injuries. Reproductive health items were provided by the United Nations Population Fund. As displacement from Mosul continues to take place, the health needs of hundreds of thousands of people will significantly increase, overburdening an already overstretched health system, and leaving many men, women and children at risk.
