GHAZNI CITY (Pajhwok): Residents of southern Ghazni province say the regional hospital lacks medicines and patients are left with no option but to buy medicines in the market.

Talking to Pajhwok on Wednesday, a number of residents said the province's regional hospital has long run out of medicines.

Resident Ahmad Khan said his father has been admitted to the hospital for treatment but there were no medicines in the hospital.

Noorullah, a resident of Nawa district, said his seven-day-old daughter had been hospitalized for the last four days. "We bring medicines from outside. I have borrowed money for my daughter’s treatment. There are many people like me who do not have money.”

A number of other patients and their attendants expressed similar concerns and asked the Ministry of Public Healthinfo-icon to address the issue as soon as possible.

Ghazni Regional Hospital acting head Mohammad Ibrahim Noori said indoor patients were offered 90 percent medicines and outdoor patients were also given as much as possible.

He said he had shared the problem with officials of the Ministry of Public Health in Kabulinfo-icon and they had promised to resolve it.

In the past one month, he said, nearly 4,000 patients visited the hospital and were given adequate care and treatment.

He said work was underway on a 300-bed facility at the Ghazni Regional Hospital, which would resolve space and bed problems.
