FMIC Hospital Building

​​Health statistics for Afghanistan paint a grim picture. One child in ten does not reach the age of five. One woman dies every two hours from pregnancy-related causes. In some districts, there is one doctor for 50,000 people; some large districts do not even have one medical doctor. To solve these problems, Afghanistan’s entire healthcare system needs to be rebuilt from the ground up.

The French Medical Institute for Mothers and Children is a not-for-profit hospital in Kabul, dedicated to providing world-class medical services and helping chart a course towards a sustainable healthcare system for Afghanistan. 

The hospital is run through an innovative four-way partnership between the Government of Afghanistan, the Government of France, the Aga Khan Development Network and the French NGO, La Chaîne de l’Espoir, with Aga Khan University managing FMIC on behalf of AKDN.

Since opening in 2006, FMIC has transformed the lives of many families by providing high quality healthcare to children throughout Afghanistan. 

The hospital’s exceptional medical services rank among the best in the region.​ 

  • FMIC’s Patient Welfare Programme ensures these services are available to the people who need them most, regardless of age, heritage, gender, or income.

  • FMIC’s innovative eHealth programmes increase access to quality healthcare in remote regions.

  • FMIC is becoming a referral centre for hospitals throughout the region.

  • FMIC is investing in the future of Afghanistan’s healthcare system by providing medical professionals with international standard training and professional development.

Since it opened, FMIC has served over 2 million patients, trained over 700 medical professionals and currently employs over 95 percent Afghan staff.​​​​​​​
