A public healthcare worker at a drug-addicts curative hospital in District 3 of Kabul complained that they have not received their salary for the last six months. As a result, the staff who number close to twenty faced major problems. The reason for the delay as mentioned by the staff was that their salary comes from Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) now while it was paid by an NGO earlier. The Ministry was not able to pay the staff salary for six months. Integrity Watch requested for information on the issue from the Ministry that resulted The workers received their salary shortly afterward.
