The Iraqi central government has vowed to send Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) a share of medical supplies, but it does not satisfy the demands in the Kurdish region, said a government official.
“Alike the previous years, Baghdad has pledged to send medicines to KRG during the year 2017, it has also promised to include an additional share for the refugees and IDPs who are overburdening KRG in the health sector,” Khalis Qader, a spokesperson for KRG’s Ministry of Health, told a local Kurdish news agency.
“The amount has not been specified by the Iraqi government, but they have ensured to deliver the shipments every month,” Qader added.
However, the shortage of medicines cannot be addressed with the Baghdad deliveries, and KRG needs to buy and distribute the necessary amount in accordance to the government instructions.
