Despite the substantial the improvements in Afghanistan's health care system, many Afghan's are opting to travel outside the country to receive treatment at a high cost to both patients and potential revenues to Afghan health centers. President Ghani committed to at least one standardized and specialize hospital in Afghanistan that minimizes the flow of patients and revenue to neighboring countries.
