UNICEF Expresses Concern Over Over 9 Million People’s Lack of Access to Health Services in Afghanistan

Bayan News – The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) has reported its latest statistics, expressing concern that 9.5 million people in Afghanistan live in areas without access to health services.

The international organization stated on Monday, January 28, on the X platform that it is concerned about the lack of access to health services for over 9 million people in Afghanistan.

According to UNICEF, despite this challenge, there are international commitments to ensure access to health services for every child, woman, and family.

This concern arises as international aid to Afghanistan has decreased since August 15, 2021, which has posed challenges to the functioning of healthcare facilities in the country.

Currently, several healthcare centers in remote areas of Afghanistan are facing shortages of staff and doctors.
