Iraq has faced significant challenges in providing adequate healthcare services to its population, especially in the aftermath of decades of conflict and instability. Mobile hospitals and medical facilities have become an increasingly important way to provide healthcare services to people living in remote or underserved areas.
Several organizations, including international NGOs and the Iraqi government, have established mobile hospitals and medical clinics in Iraq. These facilities are typically equipped with medical equipment, supplies, and staffed by trained medical professionals, including doctors, nurses, and paramedics.
Mobile hospitals and clinics in Iraq have been used to provide emergency medical care to people affected by conflict and displacement, as well as to provide routine healthcare services, such as primary care, immunizations, and maternal and child health services. Some mobile medical facilities in Iraq are also equipped with dental services and mental health services.
In recent years, the COVID-19 pandemic has also highlighted the importance of mobile medical facilities in providing testing and treatment for the virus, especially in areas with limited access to healthcare services.
