Meeting the students of our midwifery course

The present Afghan Government is aware that to run a proper health system it is important that women have a role in the health service, specially in gynecology where, given the restrictions of contacts between adult men and women outside the family, women role is crucial for the well being and welfare of the whole nation. That is way with the help of Shuhada we have decided to fund a bi-annual midwifery-obstetrics course for six girls who should be ready for the job market by 2025-26. We are very hopeful that this commitment will prove particularly precious for the future of the country where the demography keeps booming with 40% of the population under 15 years old. Midwives and obstetricians are in high demand and we are determined to play our part to contribute to meet the growimng demand on the job market.
