MSF helps local hospitals in Iraq prepare for protest-related casualties

Mass anti-government demonstrations are continuing in Southern Iraq where mass casualties are a reality. Since December 2019, the global medical aid agency Doctors Without Borders or MSF has been supporting local hospitals to prepare for trauma and casualty incidents resulting from violence accompanying the protests. Eben Van Tonder is one of MSF's Southern Africa field workers who has just returned from an assignment in the country's capital Baghdhad.
