Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in a statement has asked the Islamic Emirate authorities to schedule medical exit exams for female graduates who have pursued different streams in medicine.

The national administrative body of exams under the Taliban regime on Saturday announced that the medical “Exit Exam” for private and public university students was conducted in the absence of female graduates.   

The medical council of Afghanistan has not yet announced the “Exit Exam” date for female students. The MSF late on Monday in a Tweet asked the Taliban authorities that medical exit exam should be taken from female Afghan students.

The aid organization has said that a lack of healthcare employees can have a negative effect on accessing vital services across Afghanistan.

The MSF has further added women’s access to secondary and higher education is of paramount importance to meet the medical requirements of the people and society.

This is the first medical council exit exam after the Taliban’s return to power in August 2021. In the previous government, this exam was conducted twice a year by private and public medical university students.

Without passing the medical council exam, medicine graduates can’t receive licenses to practice their professions in Afghanistan.

This comes as the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) announced that Afghanistan’s healthcare system is under immense pressure, however, with the support of the United Nations and aid organizations, it has not yet collapsed.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC) has reported on the possible collapse of Afghanistan’s healthcare system, with 90 percent of healthcare institutions and clinics closing down in this country if aid organizations cease their vital operations.
