Health Education and Health Care Saving Lives

Health Workshop
Health Workshop

AIL’s multi faceted health program continues in rural and deprived urban areas of Afghanistan where often the AIL clinic or satellite Community Health Worker (CHW) post is the only available medical care for many miles. 

AIL health program provides comprehensive health care including treatment such as  routine care, first aid and nutrition programs, reproductive health care as well as preventive care including vaccinations and education. So far in 2013, AIL has treated an average of over 16,000 patients per month at 4 fixed clinics, mobile clinics and through its CHW program. In the same time period, AIL has provided health education to over 9,700 per month through its clinics, CHWs and workshop offerings. 

The combination of health care treatment and health education has proved to be highly effective in breaking the cycle of ill health which plagues many families in the region. As a patient waits for care, often with other family members they are given health education. The topics covered may not relate to the medical issue they are seeking treatment for but could be about proper nutrition, the value of vaccination, clean water and sanitation issues. People or eager for knowledge as they want to be healthy and care for their children in the best way they can.

A participant in reproductive health workshop said,  “My daughter-in-law died in her first child delivery and the reason she died is because of my carelessness because I didn’t allow her delivery at the hospital and in this area there weren’t any midwives. I tried to help her during her delivery. I lost my daughter in law because I didn’t have experience and the blood group of my daughter in law was negative and it caused problems. I wish that I had joined this workshop one year before so I could have helped my daughter in law.” 

Thank you for your interest and support for AIL’s health program. We have attached out year end newsletter and we hope you will take a look.
