Hamoon Health Center in FarahHamoon Health Center was established in 2003 in Farah, the poorest province in Afghanistan.  Free treatment is provided to the people who otherwise would go without.  Medicine is also distributed.  Understanding that a large part of the problem of healthcare is getting that care to the people, mobile units were created with fully equipped ambulances.  These could access outlying and remote villages where serious cases prevented patients from traveling to the city.

Afghanistan is second in the world for infant mortality rates, and the number one cause of death for women between the ages of 14 and 35 is childbirth.  OPAWC is acutely aware of this problem and strives to address it on a larger scale.
