Gardez, Afghanistan

In an effort to reduce mother and child mortality rates, a new maternity hospital is being built in Gardez, which is in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Paktia. A maternity hospital specializes in providing care for women during pregnancy and childbirth as well as care for newborn infants. The US based Bayat Foundation, which is funding the project, says on their Facebook account that the work is scheduled to be completed this summer. The new hospital will be called “Gawhar Taj Bayat”, and once completed, it will have space for 20 beds, it will include a pharmacy, a laboratory, and it will have modern equipment installed.
