Afghanistan: ICRC orthopaedic programme

10-02-2012 Field Newsletter

The ICRC has been permanently present in Afghanistan since 1987. The orthopaedic programme was one of its first activites when the Centre in Kabul opened a year later. Today, 23 years on, there are seven ICRC Ortho Centres. The ICRC also supports four, non-ICRC prosthesis workshops providing them with raw materials, staff training and technical assistance.
