Lack of normal medical supplies like vaccines or antibiodics to prevent or cure diseases.
In Afghanistan there is not a lot of supplies therefore there is not a lot of shots for numbing or putting patients to sleep.This means just to have a chance to live patients have to go through severe pain in surgery without any numbing devices. After surgeries hospitals don't have the right supplies to clean the wound from surgery so if you live through surgery you have a high chance of infection after.
As I said earlier in the presentation there is lack of necesities that are basic and this is in the capital of Afghanistan imagine the smaller parts.
The Taliban prevented women to be cared for even in a life threatening state. Even with the Taliban losing some control in 2002 men of Afghanistan will not allow women to be cared for at a hospital with male staff. They will only care for men. Afghan militiamen serving with the U.S.-led antiterrorism group still won't even allow mothers to visit their hospitalized children, only fathers. The taliban, while they were in charge wouldn't allow most women to go to school therefore there were hardly any women doctors and women were not allowed to see men doctors.
Women in Afghanistan "die every 30 seconds from childbirth"(Qazi).
Like women and men there is a big difference in the health conditions for rich and poor people in Afghanistan.
The best known and best facilitated hospitals are located in urban areas especially Kabul, Afghanistan.
Yes the medical facilities are cheaper, however the only reason they are cheaper are because of the lack of doctors and supplies .
