Early physical and functional rehabilitation of trauma patients in the Médecins Sans Frontières Trauma Centre in Kunduz, Afghanistan: Luxury or necessity?

In Afghanistan, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) provided specialised trauma care in Kunduz Trauma Centre (KTC), including physiotherapy. In this study, we describe the development of an adapted functional score for patient outcome monitoring and document the rehabilitation care provided and patient outcomes in relation to this functional score. The study concludes that the provision of physiotherapy was feasible in this humanitarian setting, and the tailored functional score appeared to be relevant.
