As people have become increasingly aware of MSF’s presence there has been a significant increase in the number of patients being treated and surgical interventions performed in the hospital in Helmand Province: from 130,289 and 3,509 respectively in 2012 to 143,168 and 4,673 in 2013. This growth has occurred against a backdrop of increasing violence in Afghanistan. MSF-Belgium coordinates the projects in Afghanistan, including in Helmand, and directly supports hospitals in Kabul, the city of Kunduz and Khost Province.
