In Baghdad, several of the main hospitals have been closed or have been able to offer only a limited amount of medical help. This is impacting on a health system that is already devastated by twelve years of sanctions, with many people experiencing chronic ill health on top of a near-permanent lack of crucial equipment and other medical supplies.
