A powerful earthquake hit the mountainous Iran-Iraq border on 12 November, at 21:18 local time. Reaching a magnitude of 7.3, the epicentre was approximately 30km outside the Kurdish city Halabja, in Northern Iraq. More than 400 people have been killed and 7,000 injured in the devastating quake, making it the world’s deadliest this year. One aid agency has also estimated that 70,000 people are now in need of shelter following the event.
This crisis is staggering. It is estimated that one in four children aged 6 months to five years are severely malnourished. The rates for infants zero to six months are even higher with estimates at one in two children at risk of death without immediate intervention. The conditions we are seeing have us on track for for an unimaginable public health crisis on the grandest of scales.
