Improving the health of women and children in Afghanistan

The health system in Afghanistan continues to face many challenges. However, growing numbers of trained health-care workers are gradually helping to deliver improved health care to more and more people.

More specifically greater numbers of skilled female health-care workers are still needed to meet the health-care needs of women and children in the country. In recent years, WHO has contributed to the establishment of training courses for midwives in Afghanistan. As a result, since 2003, more than 2 700 midwives have been trained. WHO is also working to improve the country's family planning services and strengthen the capacity of health personnel to conduct reproductive health research. These initiatives have improved birth conditions and antenatal care.
