COVID-19 Emergency Committee Allegedly Spends Only AFN 50M

KABUL – The Afghan Ministry of Finance announced the allocation of AFN 500 million for the “Emergency Committee to Prevent the Outbreak of Coronavirus,” but TOLOnews on Friday quoted a source that so far “only AFN 50 million” from the amount pledged by the government has been spent by the committee in the past four months since the funds were made available.
The source said that the AFN 50 million has been spent on health services and administrative capacity-building programs.
A member of the Afghan parliament meanwhile said that a lack of capacity within the government institutions limits the spending of the money.
“The main part of the money will be spent on the purchasing of medical supplies for COVID-19 hospitals, which will be determined by the Ministry of Public Health. It means that around AFN 200 will be used in buying medical equipment and medical supplies,” said Naser Mehri, a spokesman for the Kabul governor.
“We are gravely concerned about this–the money should be spent in the areas we need, particularly in the health sector,” said Azim Kibrzani, a member of parliament.
The Afghan government has allocated another AFN 3 billion for the provinces.
But the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) has so far not commented on the AFN 3 billion allocated by the Afghan government for the province in their efforts against tackling COVID-19.
The IDLG previously said that it had spent AFN 2 billion from the total amount. But it has not given any details where the money has been spent.
“The money was allocated and spent in the provinces, but we hope that there will be transparency and fairness in the spending of the money so that it can reach the needy,” said Ahmad Bashir Samim, the head of Badakhshan’s provincial council.
Up till now, the Afghan government and the international organizations have spent $150 million in the fight against the coronavirus. Of the $150 million, $38 million was spent by the Ministry of Public Health.
