Mhair Educational Health and Human Rights Organization (MEHHRO) has been working for healthcare since 2006 and provides high quality and affordable primary health and medical care to low-income, underprivileged, IDPs, and vulnerable groups including children and women across Afghanistan. Our aim is to make healthcare accessible to the poorest and the most deprived sections. MEHHRO is active in more than 22 Provinces of Afghanistan and owns health facility centers in more than 5 provinces of Afghanistan. Their goal is to continue improving the health and lives of the underserved who face social and financial challenges.
Moreover, Afghanistan has made good achievement in health care sector since last twenty years. However, various eye opening data from MoPH clearly indicate that access to healthcare still remains a big challenge.
While the health statistics of rural areas in Afghanistan continue to be poor, the health status and access to health for the poor in urban slum dwellers has surfaced to be equally deplorable and have less than 3% of government primary healthcare facilities.
Urban slum dwellers suffer from adverse health conditions owing to mainly two reasons –first the lack of education and thus lack of awareness; and second the unwillingness to lose a day’s wage in order to reach the nearest medical facility. Healthcare for underprivileged, which is a desperate need, thus remains unaddressed.
The need of the hour is thus a two pronged approach – first to bring quality healthcare services to doorsteps of the needy and second to promote healthcare awareness and contemporary healthcare seeking behavior among the underprivileged.
In such a scenario MEHHRO has established a mobile healthcare services delivery system which is one of the most practical mechanism. And in subscription to this view, MEHHRO has initiated the Cure at Your Doors Program. This is a unique mobile hospital program that seeks to address problems of mobility, accessibility and availability of primary healthcare with a special focus on children and women, in urban slums and remote rural areas.
