23 years ago, EMERGENCY opened a First Aid Post in Afghanistan.
‘One patient every minute’
That’s the rate that we have been treating patients since 1994 – our pace of peace.
Providing all those that enter our hospitals and clinics with free and high-quality healthcare has always been our mandate, a 28-year-old stand against war and the violation of human rights.
We reject war through our medical interventions, which have led to us treating more than 12 million people around the world so far.
We continue. Our work is not done yet. Protecting people’s health and dignity contributes to building peace.
