Dublin Event: Conflict, Crisis and Change in Afghanistan - Healthcare in a Humanitarian Disaster
Since the change of power in Afghanistan in August 2021, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has continued to provide life-saving medical care to people affected by the humanitarian crisis.
Afghanistan’s healthcare system is under great pressure; with staff and equipment shortages and some clinics and hospitals closed or poorly functioning. Patients sometimes cannot access the care they need.
Along with the struggling healthcare system, persistent drought, food scarcity and an economic crisis are contributing to high levels of malnutrition, particularly among children. For months, MSF has seen high numbers of malnourished children in its inpatient feeding centres.
