7 new sections added to Istiqlal Hospital in Kabul
The new sections includeda baby care centre, medical equipment repair centre and CT scan training programme, the deputy minister of public health said.
Naeem called the CT scan a new technology in Afghanistan, but said there were not enough professionals in the country to operate the facility.
However, he said the MoPH had launched a CT scan training programme for the capacity building of professionals.
He said that the equipment repair centre was also important because such apparatus could not be used whenever they were slightly damaged or their parts stopped working in the past.
An emergency section, laparoscopy surgery, aburnunit and construction of a waiting room were previously added to the hospital.
