About Ministry of Public Health

The Ministry of Public Health is committed to providing high quality healthcare services to Afghans.

Based on WHO estimates, nearly 20,000 Afghans suffer from various types of cancers each year while more than 15,000 die every year. The most common types of cancers are that of breast, esophagus, stomach, lip/oral, cervical and lung.
The newly established 20-bed cancer department currently located in Jumhuriat hospital has surgical and medical oncology units providing diagnostic, therapeutic, and palliative care services for cancer patients. In addition, it has an outpatient department (OPD) unit as well.
