Joint NGO Statement: Humanitarian and Security Implications of the COVID-19 crisis in northern Iraq

WFM-IGP is one of the signatories of the statement

16 April 2020: An impending humanitarian and security disaster looms large in Iraq. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbates an ongoing crisis that affects displaced communities across the country, including the survivors of atrocities perpetrated by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). These already traumatized communities now face restrictions of movement that will exacerbate underlying psychological distress that may lead to increased suicide rates.
