To the Editor: The Commentary by Drs Loevinsohn and Sayed1 on the role of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in the rebuilding of Afghanistan's health sector provided an overview of an international, coordinated response to a chronic humanitarian crisis. However, it did not mention the role of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and its member military organizations in those capacity-building efforts.
