Challenge

According to WHO, 80% of 32 million Afghans are prone to be affected out of which 66% will be symptomatic. A total of 743,424 will need hospitalization of which 30% will need critical care and 50% (111514) deaths are estimated. The situation can be worst in the absence of any preparedness and response. This is high time for FMIC, philanthropists and stakeholders to join forces and take immediate actions to minimize loss of precious lives from the pandemic.

Solution

FMIC aims at providing world-class medical care, including for disadvantaged patients; securing specialist equipment including ventilators and personal protective gear for our staff; changes to our hospital facilities to expand our capacity to respond effectively to this emergency; and building staff capacities and bringing experts on board and ensuring proper diagnostics to interrupt the spread of COVID-19 in Afghanistan.

Long-Term Impact

The project will focus on reducing the penetration of COVID-19 through proper screening, testing, awareness raising and capacity building. In collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health, FMIC will provide free testing services to around 100 Afghans on daily basis. Besides that, FMIC will raise awareness among local communities to be resilient and come stronger in the faces of the unprecedented challenge that is getting sever day by day.
