About World Health Organization

In February 1949, when the first session of the WHO Regional Committee for the Eastern Mediterranean was held in Cairo, the world was still recovering from the wounds inflicted on it by the Second World War. The historic first session reflected then the vision and determination of eleven countries with similar values, heritage and aspirations to work together in a unique partnership, and start building a better world for future generations.
The exceptional spirit of partnership and collaboration that has governed the relationship between WHO and its Member States in the Eastern Mediterranean Region over the years, resulted in landmark achievements bringing health and hope to all corners of the region.

Let us acknowledge our achievements, so that we may build on the success to meet the challenges of a new world ahead

Job Summary

Afghanistan is one of the longest protracted emergencies affected by ongoing conflict and recurrent natural calamities of different scales. The ongoing insecurity is reducing the national preparedness capacity and diminishing coping mechanisms, thus increasing the vulnerability and lowering community resilience. The directorate is mainly responsible to establish an effective coordination within the MoPH and the health partners and stakeholders in order to ensure minimum stock of emergency medical supplies, allocate and provide the required supplies predictable and accountable health emergency response to calamities caused by man-made and natural disasters.
Depending on scale and severity of disaster, hospital infrastructure and services can be affected at different degrees. We had examples in past in 2001, the district hospital of Nahrin/Baghlan, in 2013 bomb blast affected the Maidan-Wardak provincial hospital etc. Beside the damage/destruction of the infrastructure, equipment and medical stocks, the functioning of health system is disrupted due to loss of health staff, interruption of electric power and water supplies, disruption of supply chain as well as referral mechanism, and overburden of patients. It affects health staff as well. Therefore there is a need to have a strong coordination in this regard.
