4. Project: Community Health Houses

After liberation of the areas in the north of Ninawa governorate, including Zummar and Rabiaa cities, many of the people who were displaced by the war returned back to their regions, and others near the front lines moved to the newly liberated more secure areas.

Those returnees and IDPs are in urgent need for health and medical services. The centers of the big cities were provided with a good health support, but many of the sub districts and villages were left un served.

Primary health services are priority and special attention is paid to high-risk groups such as mothers and children for the community health houses projects, Heevie chose adequate number of expert nurses and trained them in direct cooperation with directory of Heath. This includes establishing and rehabilitating Community Health Houses in these villages and providing them with expert health staff and sufficient amount of medications to allow easier access to health services for its population.
