The Feroz Koh Family Health Centre

Turquoise Mountain Clinic 2018

The Feroz Koh Family Health Centre lies on the banks of the Kabul River in the heart of Kabul's Old City. It was established in 2011 as an urban clinic, pioneering family medicine in Afghanistan for the city's poor and vulnerable, especially women and children. Over 165,000 patients have been served by the clinic to date.

The clinic is led by two specialist family doctors, with an additional two doctors offering paediatric and maternal-child health services. They are supported by a team of nurses, lab technicians, a pharmacist, a radiologist, dentist, and volunteer community health workers. Following a comprehensive survey of the community’s health needs, five new medical services were added to the clinic in 2017: radiology, psycho-social counselling, minor surgery, dentistry, and dermatology.
