Community Health Workers Reach So Many

In addition to the rural clinics operated by the Afghan Institute of Learning, there are CHW’s (Community Health Workers) working in the rural villages of Herat and Kabul.  More than 65,000 families were visited by these CHW’s between January and November of this year.  The CHWs are able to offer health education, first aid, and assist in prenatal and postnatal care and deliveries.  They can also offer health assessments and refer patients to clinics when the illness or wound is more than they can take care of.

All of the health aspects of AIL’s programs have steadily increased over the years.  More and more patients are being seen and treated and AIL intends to continue and expand its services.

Thank you to all of you who supported these efforts.
