The Ministry of Public Health of Afghanistan has announced the recruitment of girls for the leadership of public health in Logar province through an open competition.

The ministry recently stated on its official page that more than 20 vacant positions were filled through an open competition in Logar province, with approximately 200 girls and boys participating.

Although the ministry did not specify the exact number of girls participating in this competition, it emphasized in its statement that volunteers competed in various fields such as administration, vaccinators, nursing, social work, and psychological counseling.

It is worth mentioning that the Ministry of Public Health had previously announced the recruitment of girls in health centers in several provinces, although officials in the ministry did not provide details about the nature and reality of this matter.

Qalandar Ebad, the acting Minister of Public Health, had previously stated that they were facing a shortage of female doctors in some provinces.

Tayyiba, one of the nursing girls in a public hospital, stated that they continue their duties as usual. She added that the shortage of female staff in this hospital is noticeable.

Furthermore, the lack of administration of “EXIT EXAM” for girls over the past two years has resulted in a shortage of female doctors in the health sector.

The Minister of Public Health reiterated that Logar, Zabul, Uruzgan, and Paktika are among the provinces where the number of female doctors and nurses is scarce.
