The 7th of October marks the day of the start of the military intervention in Afghanistan 15 years ago. When the war started, in 2001, EMERGENCY was already there with two hospitals and a network of First Aid Posts. Fifteen years later we are still in Afghanistan, the hospitals have become three, we built one Maternity Center in which more than 35,000 babies were born, and the First Aid Posts have become 44. Since the beginning of the program in 1999, more than 5 million people have been treated by EMERGENCY in Afghanistan. We invested in education and training of Afghan medical staff in order to support the national healthcare system and society as a whole. We will continue our work, providing free high quality healthcare to anyone in need, and we will continue believing that we can’t build peace through war.
