Abstract

An assessment of the progress on the recommendations from the “Health System Reconstruction in Iraq” conference held in May 2008 (Tarantino et al. 2008) is presented. The overall conclusion is that the healthcare system in Iraq has shown little progress amidst serious challenges and a lack of comprehensive and strategic vision.
