Learn about the prospects of peace in Afghanistan and what's being done to address that country's health care situation from a Kabul-born doctor and humanitarian. Dr. Abdullah earned her medical doctorate in Kabul and was an attending ob-gyn physician at Kaiser L.A. for more 20 years. She has lectured widely on health care rights and civil rights, particularly of women, children and non-combatants in war-torn countries. Over the last decade, she has returned annually to hospitals in Afghanistan to train new doctors.
