  • The number of IDPs in the Eastern Region has reached nearly 140,205 with more than 123,538 of them in Nangarhar Province, of which 64,513 are due to the recent October-onward Khogyani displacement.

  • Eight health facilities were closed in Badghis Provinces, depriving approximately 100,000 people of health care services, as NSAG made demands on the BPHS implementer HEWAD to boost the capacity of clinics by adding trauma care services and additional medicines, as well as recruit NSAG members or NSAG recommended personnel in the clinics.
