Located in Kabul, Afghanistan, Afshar Hospital provides medical care through 10 community clinics and seeks to raise public awareness about various health concerns. For example, the hospital recently started a Diabetes Awareness Campaign.
Facilitated by a three-year grant from the World Diabetes Foundation, Afshar Hospital's Diabetes Awareness Campaign will provide health screenings across Afghanistan in order to detect diabetes early and prevent potential complications leading to death. The campaign will include public announcements by the media to encourage people to attend these screenings, as well as staff training in health education to provide the general populace with educational information about preventing diabetes.
