Summary

Support 5 clinics for nearly 16,000 patients monthly in rural areas of Afghanistan with no other health services. These clinics provide medical services and prevent disease through health education.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Afghan women and children suffer from poverty, disease, and malnutrition with no access to health care. Rural Afghans live in isolation with no hospitals nearby. They are too poor to pay for health care or transportation to the nearest health facility when a loved one gets sick. Every day mothers and babies die while giving birth at home. Lack of knowledge about hygiene and other personal health concerns as well as myths and superstitions perpetuate unhealthy choices and cost lives.

How will this project solve this problem?

CHI/AIL support 5 rural health clinics that serve nearly 16,000 patients a month with medical exams, laboratory analysis, nutrition services, vaccinations, midwifery, pharmacy, minor surgery, dentistry, health education and family planning.

Potential Long Term Impact

These clinics provide health care and health education to over 200,000 people a year with no other access to services. Health care saves lives and health education prevents future sickness by teaching people practical strategies for protecting health
