The Faculty of Nursing at the UOK, in collaboration with UN agencies, international organizations, and the General Secretariat of Kufa Mosque, hosted its first International Conference, under the slogan (Displacement and Migration: Humanitarian and Health Crises). The conference, which took place for the period from March 2-3, witnessed the presence of several scientific, academic, and political figures.
The Vice-president for Scientific Affairs, Dr. Akeel Al-Khakani, stated that Iraq has been subjected to the most gruesome fierce attack led by the terrorist gangs of ISIS, which has resulted in the displacement of more than three million and two hundred thousand citizens from their homes. This number requires the intervention of the international community and humanitarian organizations, such as the UN Organization, UNESCO, and International Migration, for the provision of relief and medical supplies for the dispalced people.
The conference included the participation of more than 24 scientific researches presented over a period of two days.
