Urban health project launched in Kabul

Urban health project launched in Kabul

Jan 22, 2012 - 18:01

KABUL (PAN): The acting public health minister on Sunday inaugurated an urban health project at the Dasht-e-Barchi District Hospital area of Kabul.

The $3.5 million project, a joint venture of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the World Bank, is aimed at strengthening health services in the capital.

Speaking at the inaugural ceremony, Dr. Suraya Dalil said the project, being implemented by the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), would provide essential medicine and equipment for 44 health facilities in the city. 

She added most of the facilities were operational in rented houses, asking the Kabul Municipality to identify land for constructing proper buildings for them. She thanked JICA and Word Bank for their financial and technical support for the project. 

Meanwhile, a provincial council member, Abdul Hamid Sajadi, drew the acting public health minister's attention toward the lack of health facilities in the 13th police district of Kabul.

Also speaking on the occasion, JICA representative Hiroshi said their agency was committed to continued financial and technical cooperation with Afghanistan's health sector.
