Challenges to the Iraqi Health System Call for Reform
The Iraqi public health system has faced major challenges over the last four decades. Recurrent armed conflicts and political instabilities have resulted in service delivery that is of poor quality. This essay identifies the main challenges facing the Iraqi public health system and proposes a plan to initiate the process of addressing these challenges. Calls to action mandate a realistic assessment of the challenges posed by the current situation. Building on an understanding of these challenges and creating an environment to support evidence-based health system reform holds promise for creating a healthy future.
