One year after Iraqi and coalition forces launched a massive military campaign to wrest control of the city of Mosul from the Islamic State group, enormous humanitarian needs remain.

People displaced by the fierce urban battle are returning to a ruined city where many homes are piles of rubble and basic services like water and electricity are not widely available. Meanwhile, 70 percent of the health system is dysfunctional. MSF provides critically needed medical services in east and west Mosul, and is preparing to provide mental health support to the traumatized community.
