The Afghanistan Institute of Learning provides health services through its six health clinics in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Education about health topics are also offered at these clinics as well as through the Community Health Worker programs. In the first six months in 2010, AIL treated 101,821 patients and gave health education to 104,906 individuals.
At a recent Reproductive Health workshop, one woman shared the following: “All of the time my babies were premature and I didn’t take care about proper eating of food and vegetables and family planning. When I came here I learned how to take care of my babies. I believe AIL is like an experienced mother in our society who is here to get more information to the women of Afghanistan.”
Another participant said “In the period of Taliban we hadn’t have any clinic or any hospital in my village. All the pregnant women delivered their babies in their houses. This process was very dangerous for the women. Right now, we have a clinic in my district all the women. Women go to that clinic and solve their pregnancy problems. My thanks to AIL that support the clinic in my village.”
