October 2018 – WHO has provided 69 mobile medical clinics to Iraq’s Ministry of Health to support health service provision for vulnerable populations across the country. WHO’s emergency health support in Iraq is funded by generous donations from USAID/OFDA, ECHO, Italy, Germany, Kuwait, Japan, Korea, China, United Nations OCHA/CERF, and UN Development. In 2018, WHO and the health cluster require US$ 64.7 million to support health needs in Iraq, of which approximately 13% is currently funded.
