dc.description.abstractThe burden of war-related mental disorders is well documented among US veterans (Nature 477, 390–393; 2011), but not among civilians in Iraq. This oversight must be rectified so that adequate medical support can be provided to the Iraqi people. US combat troops will soon depart Iraq, leaving Iraqis to cope with the consequences of the 2003 invasion. Although the number of violent deaths is falling, civilians have been killed almost every day this year, most of them in coordinated bomb attacks. Roadside blasts cause long-term disabilities and societal effects among injured civilians. However, these have been largely neglected by the media and no systematic surveillance has been undertaken.
