A woman health worker checks the blood pressure of Hamida Kadhum, 22, who is pregnant, sitting with her son Abdullah Hussein, three months old, at Al-Zahra'a Primary Health Care Centre in the Kadhumiyali section of Baghdad, Iraq. UNICEF supplies oral rehydration salts (ORS), drugs and equipment to the centre. Despite the country's economic problems, large families are still common in Iraq. Hamida already has four children.
