The Iraqi healthcare system was one of the most advanced of its kind in the 1970s and 1980s. But the wars have left the healthcare system in total shambles. It has been set back almost 50 years .The impact of the 2003 invasion and subsequent conflict shattered Iraq’s primary healthcare delivery, disease control and prevention services, and health research infrastructure. Attempts to resurrect Iraq’s healthcare system remain hindered by a number of factors, including fragile national security and lack of utilities like water and electricity. Much of the damage incurred in the first few years of the invasion continues to have an impact today. Healthcare in remote regions does not exist.
