A survey of TB diagnostic and treatment practices in eight countries, October 2014.

MSF briefing paper, December 2014

What began in 2011 in Syria as protests inspired by the Arab Spring has become an entrenched and bloody conflict that shows no sign of resolution. Today, with an estimated 200,000 people killed and 7.6 million people displaced within the country and 3.2 million refugees registered outside, Syria is seen as the world’s most grave humanitarian disaster. In the face of this crisis, the previously functioning health system has collapsed and scores of thousands of medical staff have fled.

Iraq experienced a dramatic surge in violence in 2014 that triggered successive large-scale waves of displacement. More than 2.6 million people are said to have fled war-torn the central and northern areas of Iraq, particularly Al-Anbar, Ninawa, Salah Al-Din, Kirkuk and Diyala governorates.
