Medical care for Afghan women. Sedika Mojadidi's camera follows her parents, Qudrat and Nafisa, both physicians, on two visits to their homeland. Her father works in 2003 at Robia Balkhi, a women's hospital in Kabul. Although the US government claims credit for improving life for Afghan women, without supplies and renovations, providing medical care proves impossible. In 2005, they return, first to Kabul: US funds and hard work by the staff have vastly improved Robia Balkhi. ID:SA 173
