Ahmadi, Farida

Norwegian-Afghan Farida Ahmadi grew up in Kabul and studied medicine for four years there. As a medical student in the Afghan countryside she met women with bad health and many ailments, something which was directly connected to circumstances like war and religious fundamentalism, poverty and lack of knowledge and modern health measures. Ahmadi was therefore very surprised when many of the minority women she later met in peaceful Norway had similar symptoms.
