Afghan doctor reveals thousands risk death in Kabul hospitals 

Three months after the Taliban’s lightning takeover of Kabul, women are yet to return to work, girls in grades 7-12 are banned from schools and millions face a harsh winter as global agencies begin to report cases of malnutrition, starvation and lack of medical support. The Taliban’s policies on women’s rights mirror the hardline restrictions of its previous period of rule from 1996-2001. With at least half of the population being female, these policies are worsening the healthcare sector in Afghanistan as many women doctors are yet to resume work. We spoke to a Gynaecologist-Obstetrician from a Kabul hospital who narrates how thousands are being denied medical care and at risk of death.
