The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) is tasked with a critical mandate; to deliver and promote sustainable and accessible health care services to the people of Afghanistan. Social and economic advancement can only be realized in a thriving and healthy society. The MoPH is providing health services through the implementation of the Essential Package of Hospital Services (EPHS) and the Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS).
Community-based health care (CBHC) is the cornerstone of successful implementation of the BPHS. It provides the context for the most comprehensive interaction between the health system and the communities it serves. Its success depends upon community participation and a partnership between community and health staff.
The implementation of CBHC recognizes first that families and communities have always looked after their own health. Religion and cultural norms and beliefs play an important part in health practices, and families are making decisions to maintain health or care for illness every day. In addition, community members understand and have better information on local needs, priorities, and dynamics. CHWs, CHSs, Health Shuras, and Family Health Action Groups are CBHC elements.
As part of the global UHC movement, the Government of Afghanistan thrives to achieve its obligations through high level advocacy and advancing Primary Health Care (PHC) in line with Astana Declaration.
