Afghanistan still has the poorest health related indicators in the region. Due to several limitations, including geographical access, financial access and insecurity, a significant part of the population is not able to benefit from the BPHS. Moreover, Afghanistan is still experiencing high prevalence rates of communicable diseases, malnutrition, poor sanitation, mental disorders, drug addicts, disability and lack of proper prevention measures. Security, especially in remote areas, is one of the main concerns, as well as sustainability of the health services, with health service provision depending on external aid and the absence of financial allocation mechanisms. Shortage of qualified health workers, particularly females, and irrational distribution of health facilities are
additional challenges.

The overall objective of the Mission was the formulation of an EU programme aiming at supporting the health and nutrition services to the Afghan population. Particularly vulnerable groups include women and children, disabled and people with mental disorders as well as populations living in remote areas and under fragile security conditions. The role of the Ministry of Public Health is and will continue to be pivotal in the stewardship of sector and in donor coordination.
