Health – Kohat

Kohat has the following health facilities:

  • 21 Government basic health units (BHUs),
  • 4 Regional Health Clinics (RHCs),
  • 9 Dispensaries,
  • 4 Hospitals,
  • 2 MCH Centres

A recent project within the RAHA programme helped improve the facilities available at KDA Hospital.

It has also been reported that refugees often have difficulties accessing public hospitals.

Unregistered Afghan migrants do not access basic health facilities for fear of being deported under section 14 of the foreigners act.

All of the government health facilities need modernisation, staff require capacity building and there is a requirement for more medicine and equipment.
