The Ministry of Public Health of the Taliban announced that 49,553 surgeries were performed for free at “Wazir Mohammad Akbar Khan Hospital” over the past year.

The ministry stated in a press release on Tuesday, June 11, that these operations included 10,083 major surgeries and 38,550 minor surgeries.

The ministry emphasized that all these operations were conducted by Afghan specialists.

The Ministry of Public Health added that Wazir Akbar Khan Hospital provided OPD services to 233,481 patients last year.

According to the statement, “105,570 orthopaedic patients and 14,539 inpatients (IPD) were treated.”

Despite these efforts, Afghanistan still faces a severe shortage of expert doctors, equipment, and medical care facilities.

As a result, many Afghan patients choose to seek medical treatment in neighboring countries, including Pakistan and Iran, due to the lack of adequate medical services in Afghanistan.

The need for improved healthcare infrastructure and resources in Afghanistan is critical to reducing the number of patients who must travel abroad for treatment.
