Afghanistan: mobile clinics provide essential health services to internally displaced civilians

As conflict escalates in many parts of Afghanistan, the number of internally displaced people in need of assistance soars.

Since January 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) has supported the operation of 21 mobile clinics in camps for over 68 000 internally displaced people in the Afghan capital of Kabul.

The mobile clinics, supported by donations from USAID, European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) and the Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF), provide essential health services, including vaccinations, ante- and post-natal care, family planning services, nutrition counselling, and health education.
