A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed by the Afghan Ministry of Public Health with blockchain firm FantomOperations to integrate blockchain technology into the healthcare sector of the country.

As reported on November 27 by the Afghan Voice Agency, the terms of the MoU would apply blockchain to identify counterfeit medicines, create hospital medical records, and digitize patient files. Ferozuddin Feroz, Minister of Public Health of Afghanistan, commented on the initiative: ''The Ministry of Public Health is committed for the institutionalization of electronic government in the health sector and the blockchain technology would help the ministry bring transparency, acceleration and effectiveness in the related affairs."

Both the government and the public have voiced concern about the country's quantity of fake pharmaceuticals, with many people using traditional medicine for health problems because of their inexpensiveness and affordability, according to an April study from the European Asylum Support Office.

The report said: “The Medicine Importers Union stated that at least 40% of medicine and medical equipment enter the Afghan market illegally and many of the pharmaceutical products are low quality''

The United Nations announced this summer that it started to work on blockchain technology in Afghanistan for sustainable urban development. As part of the "City for All" project of the UN, the organization is implementing blockchain applications for land records and accountability of services.

The UN plan anticipates that in the next 15 years, the population of Afghanistan will become largely urban. Good land management, strategic urban planning and increased public finance are its three stated goals.

In April, central bank governor Khalil Sediq of Afghanistan said the organization was considering issuing a $5.8 billion sovereign crypto debt. Sediq has reportedly listed metal futures alongside Bitcoin (BTC) and pointed out that the country's mineral reserves are estimated to be worth more than $3 trillion.
