Darkar Clinic

Operational since December 4th, 2016 
In Activity since December 2016
2,000 services rendered per months      7 healthcare professionals





The Darkar camp is located in the North-West of Iraqi Kurdistan, near the city of Sakho in the Duhok province and the Turkish-Syrian border.

Built by UN-Habitat, it is made of 801 precast structures and can accommodate 4,000 individuals. As the probability of the refugees being able to return to their home is quite low, this camp is built for an indefinite stay.


To be able to give care to more refugees and displaced populations, EliseCare, in collaboration with the Health Directive of Duhok, built a stationary dispensary in the Darkar camp in 2016, granting EliseCare a long term influence on refugee care.

This clinic gives Darkar residents and surrounding populations a permanent access to medical consultations, no matter where they are located in the region.

Our team has been mostly hired from Darkar camp residents and is composed of 7 healthcare professionals:

  • one general medicine doctor
  • one gynecologist
  • one pediatric doctor
  • one dentist
  • one acupuncturist
  • one nurse
  • one lab technician



Services rendered

The clinic measures 2690 square feet and is composed of 7 consultation rooms, a generalist clinic, an infirmary, a gynecologist clinic, two acupuncture clinics, one for women and one for men, and a lab. The clinic also has a pharmacy and a medicine storage unit. The lab lets EliseCare’s team be independent and quick in its care for its patients.

We received our first patients in early December 2016.

EliseCare celebrated its inauguration in April 2017!

EliseCare also built a stationary dispensary in the Ainkawa camp.
