Italian organization Emergency treated over 5 million people in Afghanistan

Since December 1999, the independent Italian organization Emergency has treated over 5,280,000 people (as of December 31, 2016) in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
In over 40 years, war in Afghanistan has caused one and a half million dead, hundreds of thousands of wounded and disabled, in addition to more than four million displaced people.
The most recent war, which began in October 2001, continues to injure, kill and destroy. And on the ground there is still the legacy of previous wars: landmines and unexploded devices continue to maim children and adults, mostly civilians.
Since 1999, EMERGENCY has been active in Afghanistan and has built and managed a Surgical and Medical Centre and a Maternity Centre in the Panjshir Valley, a Surgical Centre in Kabul, a Surgical Centre in Lashkar-gah, a network of First Aid Posts and Health Centres, a programme of medical assistance to the inmates of the largest prisons in the country.

Da dicembre 1999, Emergency ha curato in Afghanistan oltre 5.280.000 persone (dati al 31 dicembre 2016) nei suoi 3 Centri chirurgici, nel Centro di maternità, nei Posti di primo soccorso e Centri sanitari.
In più di 40 anni il conflitto afgano ha causato un milione e mezzo di morti e quattro milioni di profughi. Denutrizione, scarso accesso ad acqua sicura, infezioni gastrointestinali e alle vie respiratorie non trovano risposte in un sistema sanitario nazionale inadeguato ai bisogni della popolazione.
Emergency è in Afghanistan dal 1999. Ha costruito un Centro chirurgico e un Centro di maternità ad Anabah, nella valle del Panshir, un Centro chirurgico a Kabul, un ospedale a Lashkar-gah e una rete di Posti di primo soccorso e Centri sanitari. Dal 2000 Emergency è impegnata in un programma di assistenza sanitaria ai detenuti delle maggiori carceri del Paese.
