Iraq: Strengthening primary-health-care services for people in rural areas

Primary-health-care centres (PHCC) in Iraq are vitally important for delivering basic health services to people. The delivery of such services is hampered in many rural regions by uncertain security conditions. Since 2010, the ICRC has concentrated on assisting primary-health-care centres in violence-prone areas, while working with health authorities to strengthen this essential service.
