The Project will explore potential partnership of MoPH, NGOs and communities to develop sustainable community-based primary health care in poor rural communities currently not having Government or NGO services, as a pilot for replication nationwide. The objective is to substantially reduce maternal and child mortality, prevalence of infectious diseases, malnutrition, and fertility (targets will be set later) in these targeted communities over a three-year period. The Project will improve access to basic health, nutrition and birth spacing interventions, provide quality care at low cost, and promote healthy life style. The Project will generate local contract labor. The Project will reach about 10 districts total, in Badakhshan, Bamyan, Kapisa, Samangan and Uruzgan provinces.
