Afghanistan is caught between armed conflict and a deadly public health crisis. Decades of war and the Taliban insurgencies have led to a weak and below international standard healthcare system. While coronavirus pandemic has negatively impacted even the most sophisticated, well- resourced and well-equipped healthcare systems in the world, the fragile medical system in Afghanistan is at high risk of collapse as the virus is rampaging throughout the country.
Motivated by this fact the Global Watch Group appeals for help to protect healthcare professionals against occupational infection with COVID-19 and to strengthen capacity for patient care in Afghan hospitals and healthcare facilities. We also provide financial assistance for: 1) purchase of PPEs for the hospitals and clinics, and 2) medical and hospital bills of the poor and needy COVID-19 patients.
These objectives are met through:
1) A short term online training of doctors and other healthcare workers on the detection, triage and management of COVID-19. We use the services of Afghan-American and other doctors, in the United States and Europe, who speaks Afghanistan local languages and have experience in COVID-19 patient care;
2) In collaboration with local partners we purchase locally made PPEs for designated hospitals and clinics that treat COVID-19 patients;
3) To ensure adequate access to healthcare for the poor and marginalized, in collaboration with local hospitals that are designated for treatment of COVID-19, we provide financial aid packages to hospitals for the treatment and medical bills of the needy COVID-19 patients.
In order to continue this vital task we are in need of resources.
