WHO has delivered medical supplies to Afghanistan

The representative of the organization said that the country would continue to provide medical services supported by WHO.

The organization said that a plane carrying medicines and medical supplies sent by the World Health Organization landed in Afghanistan.

This is the first WHO cargo that has entered the country since it came under the control of the Taliban.

“After several days of continuous work to find a solution, I am pleased to report that we have been able to partially replenish the stocks of medical facilities in Afghanistan and make sure that, at least for now, the provision of medical services supported by WHO can continue,” said WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean Ahmed Al-Mandhari.

On Friday, the WHO warned that medical supplies would run out in Afghanistan in the next few days.

At the same time, the organization expressed hope that it will be able to install an air bridge to the city of Mazar-I-Sharif in the north of the country with the help of the Pakistani authorities.

The cargo with a total weight of 12.5 tons, which arrived on Monday, consists of trauma kits and emergency care kits, which are enough to meet the basic medical needs of more than 200 thousand people, as well as to perform 3,500 surgical procedures and treat 6,500 patients with injuries, WHO said.
