The French Medical Institute for Mothers and Children (FMIC) provides high-quality angiography and angioplasty for patients with coronary heart diseases. Averagely, we have more than 100 patients with coronary heart diseases in a month. These patients usually come from deprived and remote areas of Afghanistan to visit FMIC, a hospital located in Kabul, and avail themselves of the services. FMIC will cover part or the full cost of the poor patients through the patient welfare program.
According to the latest WHO data published in 2018, the annual rate of deaths due to coronary heart diseases in Afghanistan reached 32,121 (12th in world ranking). Unfortunately, this situation is getting worse because Afghanistan's healthcare system is completely affected by the humanitarian crisis and it is about to collapse. Cardiac patients need immediate medical care of angiography and angioplasty in Afghanistan and their only option is French Medical Institute for Mothers and Children.
FMIC provides subsidized healthcare to the patients through a "patient welfare program". Most of the time, FMIC will cover the whole cost of the patients through this program. When the patients can't afford the cost, they will be referred to the patient welfare program, and through that, partial or the whole cost of the treatment will be covered. Individual donors who support patient welfare program, are directly helping the poorest of the poor patients in Afghanistan.
This project will enable us to provide lifesaving procedures to poor patients in Afghanistan. The patients will not be obliged to travel abroad and they will benefit from affordable and high-quality healthcare in Afghanistan. All the patients after angioplasty should regularly contact the consultants, when they are in the country they can easily contact the consultants and have regular follow-up visits.
