If You Think Our Healthcare Is Bad...

Since the US invasion of Iraq, Iraq’s health care system, and the health of the Iraqi people have been on Bush’s hit-list. Consider this: Acute malnutrition of Iraqi children under fives years of age has nearly doubled since March of 2003. Furthermore, the Iraqi Health Ministry, the UN Development Program, and others have found that 400,000 Iraqi children are suffering from “wasting” (conditions such as chronic diarrhea and protein deficiency). UNICEF found that at least 200 Iraqi children are dying every day from malnutrition, a lack of access to medical treatment, and from a lack of clean drinking water. So how is our campaign of “winning the hearts and minds of the Iraqis” going?
