The number of leishmaniasis cases in 2022 reached almost 20 thousand cases in Tel Temer and its countryside, and this was caused by the Khabur river being extremely polluted due to the water being cut off by the turkish state, and also because of lack of awareness and knowledge among the local population on how to take protective measures and how to treat the disease.
But thanks to the efforts of the KRC center and the health education team and their house visits that where happening all year long, the pandemic was swiftly and effectively delt with. And last year, KRC made huge efforts to provide medicine and treatment to the patients. However, some patient used herbal alternatives to treat the disease which inevitably made their condition to worsen, and the medical team advices not to use these methods and to come to the leishmaniasis center to recive treatment and medicine if new cases of the disease occured.
