Kabul ER: The Power of a Book


In Afghanistan, physicians at training hospitals across the country struggle to update their skills and provide adequate care to patients because of a lack of equipment, materials, and up-to-date medical texts and reference materials. In 2011, Books for Asia provided over 4,000 medical texts to healthcare institutions in Afghanistan – including Kabul Medical University. This film explores the reference materials shortage facing many physicians at training hospitals in Kabul, Afghanistan. Please watch and join us to support their work.
