Iraq has been battling with conflict since 2003 and the humanitarian situation has deteriorated since late 2013.

The country also hosts more than 250,000 Syrian refugees, who have fled atrocities in their homeland. Beside the provision of Swiss experts, the SDC has allocated for 2016 CHF 1.5 million to UNHCR in Iraq.
