Health clinics open in remote district of Badakhshan province

The National Solidarity Program of the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD) have opened two health clinics in the Shaghnan district of northeastern Badakhshan province.

The facilities will provide health services for nearly 1,000 families in 30 villages of the district.

Costing 9.6mn AFN, the projects are implemented in line with demands from community development councils in the Warjand and Shaduj areas of the district.

The local communities have contributed 10% to the implementation of the projects, according to provincial director of Rural Rehabilitation and Development Eng. Abdul Wali Maroofi.

The villagers had no access to health centers in their area and had to travel a long distance to find health services in the district center.
“The residents have to pay 400 AFN in transport fare to get to the district center,” said Shah.

Shah called on the authorities to make the facilities functional as soon as possible and added that the residents have chipped in 20 AFN per family every month to fund the facilities’ security.

The district centre is far away from their village and they have to pay 400 afs in transport fare, according to Shah, who asked the public health department to make the facilities functional as soon as possible.

The clinics would be open for the public as soon as the Ministry of Public Health appointed staff.
