Idlib - SMART

On Sunday, internally displaced people (IDP) living in the Aidoun camp near the city of Sarmin, about 30 kilometers north of Idlib, organized a demonstration to denounce the relocation of the only medical clinic in Aidoun to the city of Salqin.

Khaled al-Khatib, the head of humanitarian affairs in the western branch of the camp, said that the people living in the camp protested against moving the clinic from the camp, saying that the Qatar Red Crescent Society used the low number of patients as a pretext. Al-Khatib said that the number of patients is not low.

Al-Khatib added that the clinic served around 10,000 families from the camp and nearby villages. Al-Khatib accused the clinic's doctors of arranging to move the clinic to Salqin, the hometown of the doctors. The city of Salqin includes many private, public, and field hospitals, in addition to several clinics, medical centers, and laboratories, whereas the Aidoun camp has no medical facilities, according to al-Khatib.

Al-Khatib also said that the camp lacks modes of transport to transfer patients to Salqin, asnd they will be forced to pay for private taxis, which the camp dwellers cannot afford.

Al-Khatib reported that the doctors working in the clinic moved the clinic's equipment to the new clinic in Salqin in secret. The camp dwellers searched the cars that entered the clinic and found the equipment. The doctors used the searching of the cars as another pretext to move the clinic.

IDP camps in Idlib lack access to health care, medicine, and medical staff due to the lack of support. As a result, diseases have spread in the camps.
