On 4 November 2018 in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of EMERGENCY’s Maternity Hospital in Panjshir, Anabah, an outbreak of an unknown and as yet not determined origin was registered.

Twelve newborns, who were already in a critical condition and on antibiotic therapy, passed away due to what presented itself as sepsis.

EMERGENCY immediately informed the health authorities regarding the ongoing outbreak and involved an external private laboratory in Kabul to carry out microbiological tests. EMERGENCY will communicate the results as soon as they are available.
