Journalist visit ISAF medical facility in western Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan - A group of Afghan journalists visited Camp Arena in Herat province October 15 to learn more about the Role 1 medical facility that provides medical assistance to local Afghans.

Almost 40 people are seen everyday at the facility, established by components of the ISAF Role 1 hospital at the entrance of the compound.

People receive both basic and specialized medical assistance in the facility.  For medical issues that can not be treated at the hospital, some patients are evacuated to Italy, as a part of the country’s humanitarian aid to the Afghan population.
