Reuters featured an interview with Afghanistan’s Acting Health Minister Suraya Dalil on the sidelines of the World Health Assembly in Geneva. “Afghanistan, whose government is fighting a worsening insurgency that has dragged on for nearly a decade since the U.S.-backed overthrow of the Taliban, is also plagued by poverty, malnutrition and corruption,” Reuters writes, adding that the government and donors together spend “barely” $10 per person on health annually.
