Aid groups resume operation in Afghanistan

Many aid groups have restored their operations in Afghanistan after the Afghan Taliban’s authority assurance that women can work in the field of health.

The International Rescue Committee (IRC), Save the Children, and CARE all announced last week that they were once again running several programs, primarily in the areas of nutrition and health.

A spokesperson for IRC Nancy Dent said, “Last week, the Ministry of Public Health offered assurances that female health staff, and those working in office support roles, can resume working. Based on this clarity, IRC has restarted health and nutrition services through our static and mobile health teams in four provinces.”

A spokesperson for the Afghan Ministry of Public Health said they had not stopped any health-related activities adding, “Due to a misunderstanding they stopped their health services and now they have restarted their health services.”

Last month, the Taliban government issued an order directing local and international humanitarian organizations to avoid employing female staff members until further notice.

Taliban claimed that several women had disobeyed the Taliban’s interpretation of the Islamic clothing code.

In response, many NGOs ceased activities claiming they required female staff to reach women in the conservative nation and this move was condemned globally.
