STORY:   Fifteen mobile health centers opened in Kabul on Tuesday (February 08).

According to officials, one hundred doctors , including 70 female doctors, have been recruited for the project funded by UNICEF.

 

The mobile health units will work in areas without health facilities.


“ Most people live in remote areas , and therefore do not have access to education and health. This project has been started for them. We will go to remote areas where there is no access to education and health, and try to serve them,” said Dr. Abdul Aziz, who will be working with the centres.

 

“There are a lot of problems in our society. That is why these teams have been formed. These teams will go to areas where there are no health facilities and people do not have access to health services. We will go where needed and serve the people,” said Dr. Arzoo Ibrahimi, one of the 70 lady doctors selected for the project.

 

The mobile health centers are built in ambulances ,  and each team employs four women and one man.

 

Health officials say this project will focus on  the health of women and children in poorer and less privileged areas.

 

Billions of dollars of Afghan assets overseas  have been frozen by governments since the Taliban takeover, worsening the crisis in the war- torn country of about 40 million people, and causing the U.N. Development Programme (UNDP) to warn that 97% could fall below the poverty line by mid-2022
