KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): As many as 100 doctors of the Covid-19 hospital in northern Kunduz province will be dismissed as the Ministry of Public Healthinfo-icon (MoPH) has signed contract with another office to run the hospital affairs.

A number of doctors of the hospital held a protest gathering in Kunduz city, the provincial capital, today (Sunday).

Dr. Majid, one of the protesting doctors, told Pajhwok Afghan News that MoPH wanted to sack 100 doctors before the end of their contract.

He said, “The MoPH has signed another contract with an office named Chack and the plan was made in coordination of the ministry to fire 100 doctors.”

Lida, another protesting doctor, told Pajhwok they will continue their job until the end of their contract.

She said, “MoPH has signed three months contract, but now wants to dismiss us to bring its own people.”

Meanwhile, Amruddin Wali, a member of the provincial council, told Pajhwok that the government should avoid discriminatory behavior with doctors and let them work until the end of their contract.

On the other hand, Civil Hospital Director Ihsanullah Fazli told Pajhwok he had no information about the contract signed between the MoPH and Chack organization.

He said it would be not possible to dismiss such number of doctors as he had shared the issue with MoPH and waiting for its latest response in this regard.
