MoPH rejects SIGAR’s report about fake clinics
HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) on Saturday rejected a report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) about the existence of 21 fake health clinics in western Herat province.
Dr. Wahid Majroh, the ministry’s International Relations Department head, told Pajhwok Afghan News the SIGAR report was “baseless and untrue.”
SIGAR in its recent report has mentioned the existence of 21 fake clinics in Herat and has said the US government has no clue where the funds it provided for these facilities had gone.
Majroh said the report was a conspiracy against the Afghan Public Health Ministry, saying the SIGAR should have discussed the matter with the MoPH before disturbing the mind of masses.
He said the content of SIGAR’s report was confusing as it failed to identify whether its target was the infrastructure, personnel or locations of the hospitals.
He said the report was published at a time when the US was preparing for next year’s presidential election and it had links with the struggle of power there.
