ASADABAD (Pajhwok): A shortage of gynaecologists and skilled midwives has been a source of serious trouble for women in eastern Kunar province, residents and public health officials say.

Director of Public Health Dr. Asadullah Fazli says programmes for training educated girls as midwives have been launched in several provinces with the support of foreign donors.
