http://www.medact.org/tbx/pages/sub.cfm?id=775 Continuing Collateral Damage: The health and environmental costs of war on Iraq http://www.medact.org/tbx/docs/Coll%20Dam%202.pdf Continuing Collateral Damage: The health and environmental costs of war on Iraq calculates the toll, and shows how the general state of health of the Iraqi people, already poor by international standards, has been compromised further by the war. The findings have emerged from a comprehensive independent survey undertaken by the UK global health charity Medact. Part-funded by Oxfam and the Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation, an international team of authors and advisers, all experts on health and conflict, have assessed the health and environmental impact of the war. Executive Summary http://www.medact.org/tbx/docs/iraq%20-%20hmp%20final%20exec%20summary%202003.doc The war on Iraq and its aftermath exacted a heavy toll on combatants and civilians, who paid and continue to pay the price in death, injury and mental and physical ill health. Between 21,700 and 55,000 people died between March 20 and October 20, 2003 (the date on which this report went to press), while the health and environmental consequences of the conflict will be felt for many years to come.
