Action for Development (AfD) plans to establish a hybrid-financed primary health care facility in Kabul, Afghanistan, to ensure affordable quality services to a population of 50,000. This project enables the establishment of a facility (Phase 1) that can then be sustained in the long-term (Phase 2) by user-fees and a small annual donation of USD $7,500.

The public health system in Afghanistan is in crisis and facing closure of health clinics, shortages of medicine and medical supplies, limited access to qualified healthcare workers, and low or unpaid staff. An estimated 17.6 million people will be in need of health assistance in 2023, with children and women being the most affected. This project will establish a hybrid-financed primary health care facility in Kabul, to serve a community of at least 50,000 marginalized individuals.


AfD's hybrid-financed primary health care facility will ensure quality affordable services to the most vulnerable and reduce the impact of worsening healthcare services. The facility will ensure critical primary health services are provided, and a hybrid-financing model ensures the long-term provision of services, including access to OPD, maternal & newborn care, child health and nutrition services, laboratory tests and vaccinations. Refer to additional document: Implementation & Budget Plan.

Long-Term Impact

Long-term, the project will contribute to the reduced morbidity and mortality in the local community of 50,000 people through the provision of low- or no-cost health services. Additional outcomes include local employment opportunities, strong community engagement, and a 75% self-sustaining health facility managed by the community and for the community.
