AISPO is a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO – nonprofit entity) founded by a group of operators at the Scientific Institute San Raffaele Hospital of Milan. The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs formally recognized AISPO in 1985 as an organisation suited to implement international cooperation activities in developing countries. AISPO is involved in a variety of projects to fight poverty, social injustice and the many diseases that affect the poorest people in the world.
Because of the conflict with ISIS in the region, the Duhok Health Department had to expand their emergency services (122) to provide assistance to the host communities, displaced populations including over 24 IDP and Syrian refugee camps and an entire frontline where Peshmerga were fighting. During 3 years of AICS-funded projects (2015-2018), AISPO was able to contribute to the development of better emergency \ urgency services in the region with training activities, supply of medical equipment and construction of a new laboratory and radio system. This video shows the results accomplished during the three years of projects.
