The acting Minister of Public Health at the opening of a maternal and children's hospital in Kabul that cost nearly 300 million Afs, said that although the maternal mortality rate in Afghanistan is higher than in any other country, the maternal mortality rate last year reached more than five hundred people, and in 2023 it is 250 people so far.
Qalandar Ebad said that there is a need for female health professionals in the health sector, and the Islamic Emirate is trying to pay serious attention to the sector.
"Providing good services at mother and child clinics and taking care of patients on time has caused the death rate of mothers and children in the country to decrease to 256," said Qalandar Ebad, acting head of the Public Health Ministry.
Meanwhile, the head of the Bayat Foundation said that they built a standard hospital for children and mothers on the premises of the 100-bed Andhra Gandhi Hospital in Kabul in two years.
"The opening of the hospital helps to further reduce the deaths of mothers and children and will solve people's problems in this field," said Ehsanullah Bayat, head of the Bayat Foundation.
Abdul Salam Hanafi, the second deputy of the prime minister, asked the international community not to hinder the implementation of development projects in the country and added that everyone must obey the law.
"It is the moral duty of countries not to create obstacles for the development projects in the country so that the employment of the youth can be provided for by the implementation of the projects," said Abdul Salam Hanafi, the second deputy of the prime minister.
Based on the information of the Ministry of Public Health, after the Islamic Emirate took over, 300 clinics have been built in different provinces of the country, and the ministry plans to build new clinics in three hundred districts of the country this year.
