22-year-old Sharifa is one of the thousands of Afghan mothers struggling to overcome the hurdles that are posed by a healthcare system weakened by decades of war, poor facilities, and social and cultural barriers that are difficult to break.
EMERGENCY has always believed that access to free medical care is a fundamental human right and must be available to everyone.
We’ve tried to do our part, treating over 10 million patients in our hospitals, paediatric centres, and clinics around the word. But far too many people still lack access to healthcare.
7 April is #WorldHealthDay – an important opportunity to highlight the gap that exists in global health coverage and the importance of working together to ensure more people gain access to treatment.
We know from experience that with the right resources and commitment, high-quality healthcare can be provided in even the most difficult contexts.
We reaffirm our deep commitment to #HealthForAll.
