3  Patients were sometimes left with open sores and maggots in their wounds  Stolen pharmaceuticals and counterfeit medicine were used on Afghanistan soldiers  Starving patients, no sedatives in surgery and bedsores are also an issue  ("Afghanistan's 'Auschwitz-like’”)

4  Favor is in your hands if you’re wealthy in Afghanistan  Choice between Public Clinics that don’t run smoothly and Private Clinics which are very expensive  Generally harder on secondary class  Due to insecurity people need to travel hundreds of miles through extremely dangerous areas. (“Briggs”)

5  Women and girls have been denied there basic rights; education, work and medical care (“"Afghanistan Online: The Plight of the Afghan Woman.”)  The only medical facility where women were permitted only had 35 beds  Clean equipment, water, and electricity oxygen was not provided  Men were given more rights and access then women in health care, but the conditions are horrible unless you are wealthy or part of royalty

6  The quality of women’s health care has decreased alarmingly under the Taliban regime ("Afghanistan Online: The Plight of the Afghan Woman.“)  Male doctors were limited on treating women because “male- female” contact was prohibited unless clothes are on  Men had the ability to travel freely and have access without restriction
