NOOR has eye hospitals in Kabul, Herat, Mazar and Kandahar
Ophthalmic Training Centre (OTC) opened at its new location in Koti Sangi, Kabul in March 2011. This eye hospital is designed as a training centre for eye care for the entire country.
The Mazar Ophthalmic Centre (MOC) is a 45 bed hospital in Mazar-i-Sharif and is a centre for eye care for all of northern Afghanistan.
Kandahar Noor Eye Hospital (KNEH) is a 14-bed hospital that IAM NOOR opened in 2007 in cooperation with a local partner. This facility provides eye care to the southern region of Afghanistan.
We believe that one of the keys to providing eye care to remote regions is the establishment of sustainable facilities that are not dependent on long term outside funding.
