Ethnic and religious discrimination is a sad reality in Iraq, and it can be perceived the strongest on the level of interpersonal relations. People who survived a nightmare continue to be exposed to a humiliating treatment, which takes place also in healthcare institutions. By employing non-Iraqi doctors, who work in close cooperation with local paramedics personnel, we manage to eliminate the elements of prejudice and discrimination from our medical clinics. This results in a multinational, dynamic, dedicated and professional team. Our doctors work through English speaking nurses-translators, and periodically switch clinics to ensure availability of the broadest possible spectrum of specialists to our patients, ensure peer-control and consolidate the whole STEP-IN team.
Do not be afraid! We care very much for the safety of our multinational team, as well as for the work comfort and living comfort of our doctors.
