27 November 2016, Erbil, Iraq – WHO and UNFPA are scaling up primary and reproductive health services in eastern Mosul to ensure life-saving care for more than 60,000 people living near the front lines.
Two WHO mobile medical clinics were deployed to eastern Mosul as soon as access was possible, marking the first time that health aid reached people in the area since June 2014. WHO-supported health teams provided primary health care services. Delivery services were provided to women and girls at reproductive age through a UNFPA-supported mobile delivery unit.
WHO and UNFPA are also restoring services at the main primary health care clinic in Eastern Mosul by providing medicines, and medical supplies. Managed by the Ninewah Department of Health, the clinic is providing primary health care services, vaccinations, and reproductive health services.
