Afghanistan: Support for women and children facing conflict and poverty
After 19 years of active conflict in Afghanistan, people’s humanitarian needs are not being met and women and children are disproportionately affected. Médecins Sans Frontières has worked in Boost Hospital in Helmand province, southern Afghanistan, since 2009, supporting the Ministry of Health with essential healthcare including maternity, neonatal and paediatric services.
