List of Medical Providers in Kabul
The following information regarding medical services in Kabul is provided for general information 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.
Medical services in Afghanistan are extremely undeveloped; facilities often lack basic cleanliness, diagnostic and treatment equipment, and even the most common medications. Foreigners are urged to seek medical care on a Coalition Forces military base, if possible.
Note on private clinics in general: Private clinics are often operated by individuals without government licenses or even medical degrees. There is no public agency that monitors these operations.
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.
Ambulance Service: The Kabul Ambulance Service is staffed and administrated by Afghan employees who have been trained and equipped by a Norwegian NGO. To access the ambulance service in an emergency, call 112 from a land line or 020-112 from a cell phone.
