Primary health care clinic

Since 2014 our field clinic volunteers have provided basic healthcare services and emergency relief to the population at Bajed Kandala camp and others in need.

The field centre

In 2014 we started giving health care to over 15 000  IDP:s (Internally Displaced People) in one small cabin. Today our primary health care clinic has evolved to a fully working field health care centre with several cabins and a hard-working team of volunteer medics.

The primary health care clinic is one of our first projects and was built piece by piece at Bajed Kandala camp through kind donations. As an example of how important the clinic has become to the habitants of BK camp we can proudly announce that according to our patient register a total number of 21,886 patients had been taken care of by our dedicated team of medics during Jan 1st to Jun 1st in 2016 only.


Emergency relief and mobile team

We go wherever medical help is needed in Kurdistan, be it an emergency or a doctor’s check up. Our mobile team of volunteer medics from the field centre are always ready leave with packages of medicines and medical equipment for people need.


Background

Our medical team had already been in the field of humanitarian crisis when the 2014 Yazidi Genocide took place. With experience from our previous emergency relief work at refugee camps Domiz and Kawergosk (in Kurdish region of Iraq (KRI)) and our work with IDP:s from Mosul as well as the rest of Iraq, we, despite the lack of statistics about the ongoing crisis, concluded that there were a large number of different health-related problems among the Yazidi IDP:s. Therefore our aim at that time became to provide primary health care for the Yazidi IDP:s in one of the worse off camps, and to implement preventive health care specifically for IDP:s in the Duhok province, in KRI.

The primary health care centre is the heart of our work. Except for being a medical clinic it has grown into a field centre with space for other activities such as education for the youth and empowering activities based upon the idea of the 4S principle: Scandinavian Sustainable Strategic Solutions. However all medical and non-medical activities arises from crowdfunding. If you would like to support our primary health care centre, mark your donation with “PHCC”.
