Health

Good health is the building block of human development. We provide affordable health services and specialize in midwifery training, so mothers and their children are no longer left behind.

AfD’s Comprehensive Health Centre in Kabul offers affordable quality health care and has longer opening hours than regular health centres. In addition to midwifery trainings, the CHC also conducts regular trainings of community health workers, both of which benefit isolated communities through their cascade approach. AfD is newly planning to scale up nutrition screenings at its CHC to address malnutrition among children.
