A new maternity hospital was opened in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Khost, Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN) reported today. The hospital which was opened by the international humanitarian organization, the Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), is a 56-bed maternity hospital which has a delivery room that offers obstetric care for normal and complicated deliveries, and an operating area for emergency surgeries.

    Thank you for sharing these positive stories about Afghanistan. Amidst the stories of military actions, terrorist activities and the ongoing debate about the pending military withdrawal, a broader, positive perspective is difficult to maintain. And the good work and progress taking place gets overlooked.
