AIL has had a health program for many years centered in Herat and Kabul Provinces. So far in 2015, 52,817 patients have received care and 33,427 have been given health education. There have been 3,679 reproductive health care patients, and 67 babies born in AIL clinics. Vaccinations have been given to 11,391 people and 1,611 children have been assessed for malnutrition with 555 of those being malnourished.
Clinics provide what is needed whether it is first aid, vaccinations, reproductive healthcare, preventative care, nutrition, care for illness and disease; all of this in conjunction with health education. Women and children benefit the most from these services and go home to tell family and friends what they have learned about how to stay healthy. Here is a story:
“One of the patients came to the clinic she was so weak and had a seven-month child that was malnourished. She had money problems and couldn’t feed herself and her child properly. After a checkup I prescribed Ensure for the mother and I admitted the child to the malnutrition program. After 3 weeks, both mother and child are well and she was thankful for the clinic and AIL.”
We need your help to keep AIL’s health program going. Thank you for your support
