Syria conflict affects medicine supplies

The war in Syria is destroying the country's economy as well as people's lives, and one of the worst hit industries is pharmaceuticals.

More than 70% of factories making medicinal drugs in the country have been forced to close, leading to shortages in low-priced medicines.

Hospitals are also closing, with 27 government facilities now shut.
