Local authorities are working to rehabilitate and rebuild the main hospital in the city of Tikrit. The reconstruction project is taking place with coordination between the UNDP and the Iraqi Ministry of Health.
The construction of health facilities in the north of Syria has been a top priority during periods of peace. In al-Bab a new hospital will be opening soon which treats all cases that were previously transferred to Turkish Hospitals. However, the adminstation complains that professional cadres are hard to find.
