Iraq, determination to ignore?

The WHO_Iraq MoH have finally published on Sept 16 a summary report of part of the study conducted as ex-post assessment of prevalence of birth defects, still births, miscarriages, through an household survey. The report begins with a quite “derogatory” definition as “anecdotal” for any other study done in Iraq (few) but a review paper on DU, by local doctors.

Waiting for results of study on factors associated with congenital birth defects in Iraq

The Iraqi Ministry of Health and World Health Organization project regarding the prevalence and factors associated with congenital birth defects in Iraq. Why have the findings not been released?

 

In 2012 a project was initiated by the Iraqi Government Ministry of Health (MoH) with technical advisory and co-funding from World Health Organization (WHO). The objective was to “better understand the prevalence and factors associated with congenital birth defects (CBD)” (1).

Fallujah babies: Under a new kind of siege

While the US military has formally withdrawn from Iraq, doctors and residents of Fallujah are blaming weapons like depleted uranium and white phosphorous used during two devastating US attacks on Fallujah in 2004 for what are being described as "catastrophic" levels of birth defects and abnormalities.

Dr Samira Alani, a paediatric specialist at Fallujah General Hospital, has taken a personal interest in investigating an explosion of congenital abnormalities that have mushroomed in the wake of the US sieges since 2005.

Increase of birth defects and miscarriages in Fallujah

Newweapons Press release

Increase in time of birth defects and miscarriages in Fallujah since 2003 and its association with toxic metals load in the population and in newborns and children with birth defects and their families

We present here a full scientific investigation on the birth defects increase in Falluhja. Unusually high frequency of birth defects and miscarriages was observed over the years following 2003, with gradual increase since then and with birth defects frequencies not decreasing up to November 2010.
