Afghanistan

Case study

Mobilizing NGOs through Coordinated Donor and Ministry Support for Basic Health Care Service Delivery in Afghanistan, 2002–14

This case study examines the revival of the health care system in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban in 2001. At the start of the period all measures of health status and service delivery were extremely low. The government concluded that contracting out to NGOs was the best means of delivering primary health care services. Carefully chosen staff developed a Basic Package of Health Services that the NGOs contracted to deliver.
