Drop in Afghans getting treatment abroad


The article says that the Minister claimed that significant progress have been made in the past four years in the health sector, to the extent that “most patients with heart diseases, kidney problems and muscular are treating inside the country.”

He also added "Earlier, US$270 million was spent by Afghans for medical care in abroad, but now it decreased to US$200 million."

He made these claims during the French Medical Institute for Mothers and Children's (FMIC) 9th annual international scientific conference.  He gave no source for the numbers quoted.
