Afghanistan telecom provider Roshan has expanded its telemedicine solution beyond Kabul to provide hospitals across the country with international expertise in diagnosis, treatment and training.

Bamyan Provincial Hospital will be the first to be connected to the telemedicine project, which uses broadband technology, wireless video conferencing and digital image transfer to provide hospital staff with real-time information.

Roshan has a number of partners in the project which include the Afghanistan government, technology firm Cisco and a number of healthcare institutions.

Launched in 2007, Roshan’s telemedicine solution has benefited more than 340 patients and trained 231 Afghan medical personnel in diagnostic skills.
