WFP Iraq Country Brief, October 2019

28 November 2019 - In Iraq’s capital Baghdad, one might think that access to households during the current polio vaccination campaign would be almost impossible, given the ongoing protests. However, for Mr Mahmoud Farhan and Ms Hadeel Kareem who have been working with WHO as vaccinators for the last 16 and 5 years, respectively, this is not a barrier.

The Secretary-General is deeply concerned over reports of the continued use of live ammunition against demonstrators in Iraq, which has led to a rising number of deaths and injuries, including today in Nasiriyah. He urges all actors to refrain from violence and to engage in peaceful and meaningful dialogue for the benefit of Iraq and the Iraqi people.

Sulaymania, Kurdistan Region, Iraq - On 27 November 2019, the Deputy Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (DSRSG) and Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, Ms. Marta Ruedas, travelled to Sulaymaniyah, where she met with Dr. Haval Abubaker, Governor of Sulaymaniyah, to resolve issues affecting the delivery of humanitarian assistance to internally displaced persons and Syrian refugees.
