Med­i­cal group opens Afghanistan clinic

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - INTERNATIONAL -

KABUL, Afghanistan — The Geneva-based in­ter­na­tional health or­ga­ni­za­tion Doc­tors With­out Bor­ders says it has opened an out­pa­tient clinic in the city of Kun­duz in north­ern Afghanistan.

The an­nounce­ment comes nearly two years af­ter U.S. airstrikes dev­as­tated a trauma hos­pi­tal the group op­er­ated in Kun­duz, killing 42 peo­ple, in­clud­ing 14 staff mem­bers of the med­i­cal group.

Sil­via Dal­latomasina, head of the group’s pro­grams in Afghanistan, said Satur­day’s open­ing of the clinic is the first step to re­open­ing a trauma hos­pi­tal in Kun­duz.
