Afghan Ministry of Public Health repudiates SIGAR’s corruption allegations

suraya dalilThe Ministry of Public Health has refuted all the charges lodged against them in the report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).

SIGAR in a recent report said the financial audit of the ministry was marked with flaws and corruption existed in the aid management.

Calling the report “baseless”, Public Health Minister Dr. Suraya Dalil said there were major gaps in SIGAR’s findings, adding that the Ministry was ready to provide all necessary information regarding past utilization of funds.

“”We assure the people of Afghanistan and the tax payers of donor countries that all funds donated to the Ministry of Public Health have been spent in the right manner and all records are available,” said Dr. Dalil.

SIGAR’s report came after the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced donating USD 200mn to the Ministry. SIGAR called on USAID to hold on their new aid donation until the ministry provided a complete account of their expenses.
