Choice: Health or Debt?

According to a recent report by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), which surveyed 700 patients in four provinces, 44 percent of respondents were forced to sell their possessions or borrow money to get health care during a recent illness. “When families get into debt, they cannot afford proper food. Their kids get sick, and malnourished and it creates this perpetual cycle,” said Edi Atte, the field coordinator at Ahmed Shah Baba Hospital in Kabul. “They have to borrow money from a neighbour or someone who has money in order to take care of their child.”  More>>> andRead the Survey Report>>>

  Telling the other side
of the story

A balance must be found in the media coverage of the violence in Afghanistan and the country’s attempts to rebuild after decades of war, says Wadia Samadi, the founder and editor-in-chief of Wadsam.com, Afghanistan’s first business news website.  Readers want to see more positive business news from Afghanistan, about the building of businesses, small or big, and economic development. “What is missing is a focus on economic development, the achievements that we have had in the last decade.” she says.  More>>>

  As humanitarian space shrinks, Need does not

A new report from Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre says that in the coming time of transition in Afghanistan, as troops leave and a new president takes office, political, security and economic stability are uncertain. As such, humanitarian access has become a key concern, particularly for internally displaced people (IDPs) in rural or remote areas where development and humanitarian actors have limited access due to insecurity and on-going conflict. Shrinking humanitarian space does not translate into shrinking needs and, if anything, multiplies them. Read the Full Report>>>

  Water Management
Boosts Productivity

Gul Agha and his farmer friends know a good thing when they see it. Their irrigation canals are flowing twice as fast, their land is twice as productive, and their income has doubled. Now they’re eager for more. “These modern ideas are helping us so much,” says Gul Agha, 56. “Before we were using old agriculture methods, and we have had three decades of war when our production was almost zero. But now the canal improvement projects, laser land leveling and other new ideas are very good for us.” More>>>

Fast Track
for Afghan Businesses

CBI began in late 2011 to help a handful of individual Afghan entrepreneurs access European markets. Among them are five Kabul-based exporters in the Home Decoration/Home Textile (HD/HT) sector. In September, 2013, they exhibited at the Maison et Objet trade fair in Paris. The debut was a huge success and CBI estimates the five businesses together will log at least 1.2 million euro worth of new export turnover by 2015. More>>>

  Afghanistan Phones Tapped

On May 23, WikiLeaks revealed that Afghanistan was the previously unnamed country where the NSA conducted mass phone surveillance. The surveillance goes beyond the NSA’s controversial program in the United States. According to WikiLeaks, since 2013 the NSA has been recording and storing almost all phone calls — including those made by Afghan journalists — in the country and to other countries.  More>>>

  Afghanistan Rejects
Facebook Ban

The Afghanistan National Security Council (NSC) chaired by President Hamid Karzai, has decided not to ban Facebook in the country and called on Afghan youths and activists not to enflame tensions by misusing social media. A Presidential Palace statement said that the freedom of media has been one of the major achievements of Afghanistan during the past 13 years for the continuity of democracy, and the Afghan government remains committed to defend the freedom of media. Concerns had earlier arisen sue to the enflaming tensions and ethnic divisions through social media especially in the wake of the recent elections.  More>>>

Kabul Power Plant
Goes Unused

A barely-used power plant financed by American taxpayers near Kabul, Afghanistan has cost the U.S. more than $300 million, and the Subcommittee on Financial & Contracting Oversight is demanding answers from USAID. Completed in 2010 at a total expense of $307 million, USAID has since spent about $27 million on maintenance-meaning. The plant has produced only 2.2% of its capability and fuel needed to run it either can’t be stored in Kabul or is too expensive.  The power plant operates only as an emergency power source and its generators sit idle most of the time. More>>>
