January 2015, Erbil -–WHO is advocating with the Ministry of Health and Directorate of Health (DOH) to ensure that preventive services are available and all health facilities serving displaced populations. In the WHO conducted assessment it was found that some health facilities serving IDPs in Erbil (Mart Shmoony Charitable Medical Unit and Harsham IDP camp), and Dohuk (Bajet Kandala IDP 1 & 2) are not providing vaccination services. WHO is working together with the Ministry of Health and other health partners to ensure that the vaccination services are available to all displaced children and children from host communities.
