Challenge

Afghans living in poverty suffer from ill health, disease and malnutrition and have little access to health care, some rural communities have no hospitals nearby. People are too poor to pay for health care or transportation to the nearest health facility when a loved one gets sick. Everyday mothers and babies die during at home birthing. Lack of knowledge about hygiene and other personal health issues as well as myths and superstitions perpetuate unhealthy choices and cost lives and suffering

Solution

AIL supports rural and poor urban health clinics that serve patients with medical exams, laboratory analysis, nutrition services, vaccinations, midwifery, pharmacy, minor surgery, dentistry, health education and family planning.

Long-Term Impact

AIL clinics provide health care and health education to those who lack any other medical options. Health care saves lives and health education prevents future sickness by teaching people practical strategies for protecting their health.
