A year after Iraqi forces recaptured Mosul from Daesh (ISIS), the city's health care system remains broken, its hospitals lie in ruins and even basic services are lacking, according to aid groups.MSF said that in May it received 3,557 cases at the emergency room of its West Mosul hospital, of which 95 percent were caused by unsafe living conditions, such as people falling from damaged buildings or walls, or buildings collapsing.Last April, MSF opened a post-care facility at a hospital in East Mosul to provide services for people injured by violent or accidental trauma during fighting to retake the city.
