The conflict in Afghanistan continues to limit access to quality healthcare services.
People in need of healthcare must often travel long distances, across insecure areas, to reach public medical facilities. A lack of trained medical staff, particularly female doctors and nurses, further restricts access for many. Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is expanding its work at several hospitals, aiming to meet some of the most urgent needs.
MSF has been working in Afghanistan since 1981. It has several facilities all over Afghanistan, including a trauma centre in Kunduz, Northern Afghanistan, and a hospital in Lashkargah, Helmand Province.
