Bost Hospital receives patients with serious conditions referred from across Helmand, a province with a population of nearly a million people. After the return of democratic government in 2002 the hospital was suffering from over a decade of neglect. However, with the support of international donors, the local Department of Health has rebuilt it to provide an essential medical service. In the past two years UK and Estonia, working through the Provincial Reconstruction Team, has supported Bost Hospital by installing water, electric and sewage systems at a cost of $250,000, and donating $1.25m of medical equipment.(20090813)
