The Iraqi people already know that there are spiralling rates of birth
defects and miscarriages, they see it every day. The research carried
out by the Iraqi Ministry of Health and the World Health Organisation
will provide the confirmation required to spur research into the causes
and for action to be taken to mitigate this health crisis.
Children and families continue to suffer the consequences of a war
they did not cause, so no more delays, no more politics: the WHO and
Iraqi Ministry of Health must release the study data for swift and
independent peer-review in an open access journal.
#Act4Iraq and release the birth defect data!
