Millions of people are dying because of disease, epidemics and lack of medical attention. Other contributing factors in the rise in number of the dead are the inability to meet bills of medical treatment, lack of inoculation in many developing countries and deprived societies and war, with all its brutal shapes. War is responsible for the loss of millions of human lives, while leaving the survivors either wounded or maimed forever, thus further aggravating the suffering of many individuals and communities.

The Health Care Program of IIROSA strives to provide primary health care services to hundreds of thousands of victims of natural or man-made disasters and wars in various parts of the world.
