List of Medical Providers in Afghanistan
The following information regarding medical services in Kabul is provided for informational purposes only. The U.S. Embassy cannot recommend a particular physician, and assumes no responsibility for the quality of service provided by any facility or practitioner on this list. The Embassy is unable to pay for medical services for U.S. citizens in Afghanistan.
Generally, medical services in Afghanistan are extremely undeveloped. Facilities often lack basic cleanliness, diagnostic and treatment equipment, and even the most common medications. Private clinics are often operated by individuals without government licenses or even medical degrees. There is no public agency that monitors these operations. If eligible, you may wish to seek medical care on a Coalition Forces military base.
Telephone dialing instructions: All telephone numbers provided below are local access. When calling from outside of Afghanistan, you need to dial +93 and omit the first digit (usually a zero) from each of the numbers below.
