On the UN's International Universal Health Coverage Day, some citizens of the country said that they don’t have access to health services, especially in remote villages.
Ahmad Shah is a resident of Khas district in Uruzgan and he said that due to a lack of health services in this province they must bring their patients to Kabul.
“We don’t have health facilities in our village, like clinics, to take our patients to,” said Ahmad Shah, a patient.
“Clinics have to be made for us in the remote districts so we can take our patients there so people are not forced to take their patients to foreign countries,” said Ziaulhaq a relative of a patient.
Meanwhile, officials of the Ministry of Public Health called on the World Health Organization and other organizations to cooperate with the health sector in Afghanistan.
“We ask that organizations work on the health sector and try make progress in the health system,” said Sayed Rasul Mangal, head of health financing at the Ministry of Public Health.
“We can make great achievements on the domestic and international level for the Islamic Emirate health system, one of these achievements is to improve the health of families and society,” said Abdul Latif Nazari, deputy of the Ministry of Economy.
According to information from the Public Health Ministry, nearly 70 percent have access to health services, and more than 20 percent receive mobile health services.
