Acting Deputy Chief of the Mission Mr. Sayed Mujtaba Ahmadi met with Mr. K. K. Kalra CEO of the National Accreditation Board of Hospitals on 6th January, 2016 at the NABH premises.

The objective of the meeting was to provide a baseline assessment of two hospitals, one private and one government hospital in Kabul Afghanistan in the month of January or February 2016.

Mr.Ahmadi gave a brief about the proposal of the Ministry of Public Health, Afghanistan for the baseline assessment of two hospitals in Kabul. He presented the TOR (Terms of Reference) to Mr.  Kalra for the assessment and asked them to cooperate in this regard.

Mr. Kalra explained that there are two types of assessment in NABH. One that a hospital has to register and apply separately online and make a separate request for the assessment then all rules and regulations are sent to the hospital and the hospital makes arrangements accordingly, and after that a pre-assessment is done and time is given to fill the gaps and when the hospital is ready then a team of three to four persons visit the hospital for assessment and finally they give the report to the committee members.

The second type of assessment is that without any preparation directly the assessment is done and the report is given and after that the hospital has to fill the gaps according to the report.

Mr. Bhupendra Kumar Rana Joint Director of NABH who was also present in the meeting gave information about the fee structure of the assessment and said that there is the same fee structure of assessment for the hospitals for SAARC Countries as for the hospitals in India.

Mr. Ahmadi in the end assured them to find answers for their queries as soon as possible and also asked them to send a letter regarding the procedure of assessment of hospitals, so that it could be sent to Afghanistan for the review of the Ministry of Public Health of Afghanistan so that they could make decision as to which type of assessment they would want to have for the hospitals of Afghanistan.
