Health care and Afghanistan are both usually associated with bad news. Given the new year we have, I think a few happier stories are in order, courtesy of BBC world service radio. The first involves an Afghan-born radiologist, currently training as a registrar in Aintree, who has set up a telemedicine system to advise Afghan physicians:

The second describes a cardiologist who lost his mother to septicaemia, partly because she refused to be treated by a male physician, and was inspired to develop a health sciences complex to train female physicians and other health care professionals who are urgently needed across the country.

One could argue that such segregation by gender is wrong but that would ignore the reality of Afghan life and the needs of its population.

One could argue that it's simply 'Darwinesque' with those casting aside outdated views living and those that refuse, dying.
