Natalia Kanem recalls that in an Afghanistan ravaged by decades of conflict, women, especially in the most severe areas affected by violence, are the only family supports.

This is why "we really hope to deliver goods and goods" to populations living in small communities, as well as "preserve an operational health system".

The head of the UN recognizes that the goal is "difficult" to reach "with the closed airport" and "some professionals who left the country".

"If the health system collapses, it will be a total catastrophe", is still alarmed by Kanem. The United Nations released Wednesday $ 45 million in emergency aid for the health system in Afghanistan.
