Description : Ten years on from the start of the present conflict in Afghanistan, fighting is widespread, particularly in rural areas. In the wider context of 30 years of conflict in Afghanistan, the disengagement of international troops signals the beginning of a new chapter but Jacques de Maio, Head of Operations for South Asia at International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) warns: "We expect more fighting, more armed violence, more bombs, more wounded, and more forced displacement." . The ICRC provides medical supplies and nurses, surgeons, gynaecologists, doctors and a hospital administrator to support the Ministry of Public Health staff.
