Association of Iraqi Academics UK 2nd Annual Medical Conference 13th of June 2015

Dr Sondus Hassounah and Dr Mays Raheem delivered a presentation discussing their published paper titled “Living Condition Iraq- 10 years after invasion” at the Association of Iraqi Academics UK 2nd Annual Medical Conference on the 13th of June 2015.

Both researchers argued, through their work, that today Iraq is beset by chronic political deadlock and a complexity of economic challenges; accordingly all aspects of life are suffering, including health. Irrespective of the monumental investment to improve components of the health system, via national and international efforts, the health status of the population can only advance through resounding and synergistic effort in other aspects of life affecting health: the social determinants of health.
