Syria's war cripples its healthcare system

Almost half of all medical personnel have fled the country since the start of the civil war.

    Syria's civil war has decimated the country's healthcare system, leaving millions of children lacking much needed medical attention.

    Government forces have been accused of targeting hospitals in rebel held areas, and the UN says Syria’s government is using the denial of medical care as a weapon of war.
