Afghanistan is facing a severe crisis in its healthcare sector as the country remains conflict-affected. To boost life-saving support and keep the healthcare system on its feet, it has recently received UDS 45 million from the United Nations’ Central Emergency Response Fund.
The aim is to ensure that people across the country are not denied access to primary health care such as emergency cesarean sections and trauma care.
The funds will allow the UN’s health and children’s agencies – with the help of partner NGOs – to keep hospitals, COVID-19 centres and other health facilities operating until the end of the year.
