90% health centers may shut down by the end of 2022: IRC

KABUL (Khaama Press): International Rescue Committee in its latest report warned that up to 90 percent of health centers in Afghanistan might shut down by the end of this year, 2022. The reports review that millions of Afghan people will be left without health services and facilities and millions more may lose lives if the current economic and political situation continues.
IRC has also warned of the bleak future of the Afghan people as it estimates up to 97 percent of the country’s people to face starvation by the end of 2022.
The committee has called on the International Community to come forward and rescue Afghanistan’s health sector by providing aids and supporting the sector.
It comes a day after WFP said that they will need up to $2.6 billion to feed some 23 million Afghan people now on the brink of starvation. The program has said that poverty in Afghanistan is horrific this time as it has entered cities and the new people who are starving are mostly teachers and construction workers who are laid off after the collapse of the previous Afghan government.
