Description of Resource

This brief report outlines the needs of Iraqi children displaced within Iraq and surrounding countries like Jordan and Syria. Within war-torn Iraq, UNICEF points to education as a critical issue, because the violence makes regular school attendance difficult for many children. Poor medical care is also a serious problem outlined by UNICEF. The report especially calls attention to female-headed Iraqi families, who may struggle even more to attain adequate schooling and medical care.
