Dr. Samira Alani was born and raised in Fallujah. At the time of the U.S.-led invasion and occupation of Iraq in 2003, she was working at Fallujah General Hospital as Chief of the Pediatrics Department. In 2005, a year after the two devastating sieges of Fallujah, Dr. Samira's staff began noticing increased rates of cancers and birth defects. She began keeping a log of these incidents, which became instrumental to a series of public health studies that have confirmed that Fallujah is indeed suffering from some of the highest rates of birth defects ever recorded. Dr. Samira has worked tirelessly to document, investigate, and treat this public health crisis. She has co-authored several studies and continues to document the daily cases of birth defects in Fallujah.
