My vision is: Healthy Afghans, Developed Afghanistan and Human Prosperity Worldwide.
I have studied medicine at Herat Medical Faculty (1994-2000) and have been able to be accepted as an academic member/lecturer in the same faculty (2001). Through a national and international competition, I have been able to obtain a DAAD scholarship and did my master of science in International Health in Heidelberg University in Germany. I have worked simultaneously with several national and international NGOs in the fields of program management, organizational development and research towards better health, livelihoods and development of the poor and marginalized Afghans.
