ICRC working with Afghan Red Crescent Society (ARCS) at Kabul District Hospital Against COVID-19

Designated by Afghanistan’s Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) as one of the only four COVID-19 treatment centres in the city, Kabul Afghan Red Crescent Society (ARCS) District Hospital is adapting to a new and crucial role in responding to COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the intense gravity of the situation, a joint effort between ICRC and ARCS to receive COVID-19 patients is a welcoming endeavour to contain the spread of the pandemic.

Support from the ICRC to the ARCS to alleviate the District Hospital’s response to COVID-19 includes training existing staff on infection control, using personal protective materials, sharing guidelines, and advising on patient flow and treatment.
