Since the threat of terrorism escalated in Iraq in 2014 and the crisis of the Internally Displaced became a national crisis. ifmsa-Iraq
members were one of the first respondents to the incredibly devastating situation.
Through over 40 visits to date carried out by members from all committees but organized mainly by SCORP, ifmsa-Iraq
members provided assistance through clinical checkups, health and needs assessments,
providing essentials from food and hygiene kits to the very essential emotional and mental support to the displaced children and adults
ifmsa-Iraq partnered with many organizations including Iraqi Health Aid Organization (IHAO) to
reach those in need in the more rural areas. Medical students have showed a great deal in
leadership and responsibility during these visits and they will continue working to help the
humanitarian situation in the country.
