KABUL: The French Medical Institute for Mothers and Children (FMIC) celebrated its 10th anniversary at a ceremony on Thursday (November 3rd), marking a decade of easing a nearly 800,000 patients with quality products across Afghanistan.
FMIC is the first hospital to perform open and closed pediatric heart surgeries in Afghanistan and built a reputation as the country’s foremost children’s hospital.
“It’s the spirit of innovation and collaboration – the relentless drive to push the boundaries of what’s possible – that has made FMIC one of the leading hospitals in Afghanistan,” said chief guest Dr. Ferozuddin Feroz, Minister of Public Health, as quoted in a press release issued by FMIC press office.
FMIC is the product of an innovative public-private partnership between the Governments of Afghanistan and France, the French NGO La Chaine de L’Espoir/Enfants Afghans and the Aga Khan Development Network. It is managed by the Aga Khan University.
