Duhok: At least three hospitals and a number of health centers are going to be shut down in the Kurdish city of Duhok due to a lack of physicians. “In 2016 alone, around 100 physicians have left Duhok province and gone abroad, and that has reduced the number of physicians in the province. Therefore we are forced to close three hospitals and many other health centers,” Dr. Nizar Ismat, general manager of Duhok health, told Rudaw. “In the first phase, three hospitals in the Zakho and Akre districts are going to be shut down as well as many other health centers and departments from public hospitals in a bid to move their employees to other hospitals,” where they will continue working, Ismat explained. Duhok’s Azadi Teaching Hospital, one of the biggest hospitals in the city that has a population of 1.4 million, is also suffering from a lack of physicians.

[size=13]Kurdish families with special needs separating due to economic crisis[/size]
About 100 families with people who have special needs, including those with dwarfism, in Iraqi Kurdistan Region are facing separation due to the economic crisis, which is increasing every day. Nearly 10,000 people with special needs receive benefits from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). The KRG has failed to provide these benefits properly due to the economic crisis. The head of the Short Statured People’s Association in the Kurdistan Region, Omer Jabar, told NRT on Monday that people with dwarfism are under pressure because the government has failed to provide their monthly benefits properly. “There is a lot of pressure on us, on our members,” Jabar said. “Our members are separating every day. More than 85 people with dwarfism have separated.” Seven organizations which help those with special needs have announced a campaign of assistance, calling on the wealthy and the public in the Kurdistan Region to aid those with disabilities and with dwarfism.

The Iraqi Kurdistan Mine Action Agency (IKMAA) announced more than 7,000 landmines and improvised explosive devices were defused in the Kurdistan Region over the first four months of 2016. The agency released a statement on its Facebook page on Monday saying the agency’s team defused 5,111 mines and 2,060 improvised explosive devices. The head of IKMAA, Mohammed Ahmed, told the agency’s media that teams continue work despite the economic crisis facing the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). “If the KRG provides a budget and exempts the agency’s teams from the payment system [of reduced salaries], we could accelerate the demining to rid the Kurdistan Region of the danger of mines and IEDs,” Ahmed said.
