A second wing added to Kabul’s Wazir Akbar Khan Emergency Hospital

The Wazir Akbar Khan Emergency Hospital has been expanded by the inauguration of a second wing on Wednesday.

Equipped with modern facilities, the new section has 20 beds, a pharmacy, an X-ray plant and a laboratory.

Addressing the inaugural ceremony, Deputy Minister of Public Health Dr. Abdul Baseer Sarwar said the new facilities would prevent Afghans from traveling abroad for treatment.

As many as 14 emergency hospitals equipped with modern machines had been established in Kabul and different provinces of Afghanistan, said Dr. Sarwar.

Wazir Akbar Khan is one of the major healthcare providers in capital Kabul. The hospital was handed over to the Ministry of Public Health in 2005 after years of renovations by technicians from the Norwegian Red Cross and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
