Saddamís Legacy

Due to the neglect and mismanagement of the Regime, the Iraqi healthcare system declined from one of the best systems in the region to one of ruin. During the 1990ís, spending on public health was cut by more than 90 percent with devastating results for the lives of average Iraqi citizens. At 102 deaths per 1,000 live births, infant mortality rates in Iraq have been among the highest in the world.
