Health care empowers women

Women’s empowerment, education and health are all connected!

AIL has always taken a multi-pronged approach providing education and health care and health education. Poor health, ignorance and malnutrition in children hold women and families back from prospering. A woman caring for sick children cannot attend class.  AIL's health clinics assessed the nutritional status of 26,000 children in 2020 and 1,944 were treated for malnutrition.

"There are many people who have no access to a health clinic, so their children suffer malnutrition because of ignorance. AIL Community Health Worker posts are connected to the Herat clinics and find such children in the villages and refer them to the clinic. The children receive food and nutrition health messages till they get fine. We give them consultations on how to serve healthy food as well."  (Nutrition Section staff member)

When women know how to take care of their health, are healthy and have children who are well nourished, those women are more productive in their family unit and community. They are more likely to prioritize education of their daughters and seek education and skills training for themselves.

Thank you for your support.
