Chechnya and its neighbour to the west, Ingushetia, are small and poor Muslim-majority regions in the North Caucasus of the Russian Federation. The Chechen wars of the 1990s, triggered by independence movements in Chechnya and the brutal response by Moscow left an estimated 300,000 dead and nearly three-quarters of a million displaced, the majority of them in Ingushetia and Dagestan.

International Medical Corps has been working in the North Caucasus since 2000, providing primary health care, mother child health and psychosocial and mental health support to a corner of Russia emerging from the ruins of wars that have left poverty levels and  maternal and child mortality rates stubbornly high. We also support programmes to prevent gender-based violence and conduct public health outreach on tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, drug abuse and smoking prevention.
