AID: Northern Syrian province needs medical aid

Middle East Monitor – The northern Syrian province of Idlib, home to more than 4 million displaced people, needs humanitarian assistance for their medical needs, according to the Alliance of International Doctors (AID), reports Anadolu Agency.

Dr Murat Koc, the head of AID’s branch in Diyarbakir, Turkey, near the Syrian border, said that there are significant health deficiencies in Idlib, including primary clinics, hospitals, and universities.

He stressed that residents face difficulties reaching medicine and protective health services. And because a lot of the population live in tents, he said there are difficulties getting to health services, such as gynecology, vaccination, monitoring pregnancy and babies but non-governmental organisations and institutions are building primary clinics, which are especially important for various medical fields.
