Visits to AfD’s Comprehensive Health Center have increased by 35% over the last few months, according to the centre’s management staff. This can be explained by the shipment of Swiss pharmaceuticals to the centre in June
AfD was an active organizer of Empower’s School of Health Training Program, that took place in Geneva from June 20th to 24th. The program focused on promoting access to medicines and addressed procurement, quality, regulation and market shaping in the area of international aid.
On June 16th, AfD’s first shipment of medicine donated from Swiss pharmaceutical companies was delivered to the Comprehensive Health Center in Kabul. The shipment comprised approximately 4,800 boxes of medication, mainly antibiotics, cardiovascular drugs, oral contraceptives and antidepressants, and will benefit 4,300 patients over the coming six months.
