Al-Hasakah, SMART

Lack of medicine and poor health care cause infectious diseases to spread among internally displaced persons (IDPs) residing in the camp of Qana (al-Sad) village, in areas controlled by the Kurdish Autonomous Administration, south of al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria.

On Tuesday, Hawzan, who is a member of the Kurdish Red Crescent reported that they receive 200 cases per day, including cases of Leishmania, tuberculosis, and other infectious skin diseases.   

Hawzan added that the cases are handled by another (unnamed) organization, which visits the camp two times a week although sometimes it does not visit the camp at all. Further, it does not provide patients with medication. Hawzan added that the Kurdish Red Crescent had indeed established a first aid clinic as well as four internal and women clinics.  

Hawzan called upon specialized organizations to intervene and provide mobile clinics for the camp to stop the spread of leishmania. Hazan added that they receive ten cases of leishmania per month and the cases intensify from infection, lack of medication, and poor hygiene services.

An IDP from Deir ez -Zor complained that the medical clinic at the camp receives only 60 children per day within specific work hours.

Earlier, the Kurdish Red Crescent documented cases of leishmania at the camp due to improper disposal of garbage and poor medical aid services provided by organizations and the Kurdish Autonomous Administration, the latter of which control the area.

1,200 IDPs from Deir ez-Zor and other areas live in difficult conditions at the camp of al-Sad near the city of al-Shadadi, south of al-Hasakah.
