Mobile clinics near Mosul


Première Urgence Internationale has deployed mobile clinics less than 50km from the city of Mosul in Iraq where fighting has been going on since 17th October 2015. Our medical teams have been working since 22nd October in the Zelikan camp which welcomes displaced communities.

The battle of Mosul promises to be long and difficult for the city’s inhabitants. According to a study by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) from 30th October 2015, around 18,000 people have been displaced following these military operations.

Since the fighting started, Première Urgence Internationale has been prepared to provide aid to people fleeing the combats, in particular by helping mobile clinics that are permanently stationed along the front line. Doctors, nurses and pharmacists also help by bringing first aid to the communities. Two other mobile clinics have also been set up in order to provide mental healthcare.

Since Saturday 22nd October, Première Urgence Internationale’s mobile clinics have moved into the Zelikan camp and have recently opened to welcome those who have fled Mosul.

*This activity is implemented with the financial assistance of the European Union (ECHO)
