Reaching the unreached- FMIC Patient Welfare Prog.

The French Medical Institute for Mothers and Children is the product of a unique four-party international partnership that includes the Governments of Afghanistan and France, the Aga Khan University (an agency of the Aga Khan Development Network), and the French humanitarian organization La Chaîne de l’Espoir.


FMIC has so far served over 1.5 million patients from all parts of Afghanistan through its in-patient and out-patient services. In diagnostics, 4.3 million Laboratory Tests and 0.8 Million Radiology Procedures have been performed thus far. FMIC’s Patient Welfare Programme underwrites the cost of care for people who cannot afford to pay for all or part of their treatment.  Since FMIC’s inception in 2006 to date FMIC’s Patient Welfare Program has spent over $39 million so far in providing the medical and surgical care to those in critical need.
We are highly grateful to the generosity of our donors for their support to the patient welfare which ultimately helps us serve the most deserving and deprived segments of the society. 

There are numerous stories of our patients who have benefited from the world class services of FMIC at their doorstep. One of such stories is that of Natasha (Pseudonym). Natasha was 14 when she began to experience stomach pain and fainting spells. Her parents took her to several hospitals, but to no avail. They were on the verge of taking her abroad for treatment when friends advised them to visit FMIC. There, doctors diagnosed Natasha with a large cystic mass in her abdomen. A day after FMIC’s paediatric surgeons removed the 5 kg (11 lb) mass from Natasha’s stomach, she was discharged from the hospital and returned home. She is now in good health and excited to attend school again. Natasha is just one of the many Afghans whom FMIC has saved from the trouble, stress and expense of seeking treatment abroad.

On a daily basis, FMIC ensures that no patient leaves the hospital untreated because of lack of money. For many patients, even a $10 expense is an obstacle to healthcare. Envision a child or mother suffering from life-threatening diseases in an impoverished and war-affected zone. Imagine that just a few dollars contributed by you can help save lives and improve quality of life for many. For example, $10 will pay for an initial visit to a doctor, $15 will pay for one-night stay of a patient in general ward, $65 will pay for one night stay of a patient in the Intensive Care Unit.  We do appreciate your continued support and cooperation!
