This experiment aimed at determination of vitamin D along with some Hematological parameters among women refugees from different camps and apparently healthy individuals in Hawler province; Kurdistan region of Iraq. 50 women refugees and 45 controls individual were studied between April and June, 2015. The results showed a lower level (p < 0.007) in vitamins D of women refugees as compared with the control group. Hematological parameters were considered white blood cell count (WBCs), Erythrocytes (RBCs), lymphocytes, platelet count, packed cell volume (PCV) and Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). Tests were performed after storing samples in EDTA contained tubes. The level of WBCs, RBCs, platelets count, PCV and lymphocyte were significantly lower (p < 0.05) than control groups. The level of ESR was significantly higher (p >0.05) among refugees. Present work states that Vitamin D status decreased significantly among women refugees that currently resettled in Erbil province; Kurdistan region where they are at higher risk to get further complications e.g musculoskeletal disorders and anemia. The paper suggests health facilities should be improved in the refugee camps of hawler province/Iraq.
