MISSION CONTEXT

Since the offensives of the group Islamic State (IS) in 2014, Iraq has been facing an internal armed conflict and a double humanitarian crisis, with high numbers of Iraqi internally-displaced people (IDPs) and Syrian refugees in need of humanitarian assistance. As of September 2016, there were 3,322,410 recorded IDPs and 245,000 Syrian refugees in Iraq.

The identification of the most vulnerable individuals among them, including people with disabilities, and the rapid response to their essential needs (both basic and specific) is a priority for the humanitarian community. In addition, Conventional Weapons (CW) and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) continue to impose a devastating human toll in Iraq. In contaminated areas, local populations, IDPs and returning populations are all at risk of death and injury.

The armed conflict and the humanitarian crisis in Iraq will continue into 2017. In parallel, the economic and political crisis in Iraq is hampering the delivery of medical and socio-economic services, complicating the access and increasing the vulnerability of the general population, and in particular of persons with disabilities, all over Iraq.
