Through Afshar Hospital, women are provided a clean and safe hospital environment staffed with OB-GYN specialists as well as ultrasounds, pre/postnatal care, and pregnancy clinics. Afshar also administers vaccinations, vitamins and micro-nutrient meal packs to help prevent unnecessary sickness and malnourished children. In 2016, 1,537 babies were delivered at Afshar Hospital.
Health Education – UNICEF Executive Director Ann Veneman says “Educating girls is pivotal to improving maternal and neonatal health and also benefits families and societies.”
Education for girls and women are the back bone of AAHO’s model of care. Girls and women that receive care and education through AAHO’s hospital, clinics, and health lessons, survive at a much higher rate than the rest of the population.
Opportunities – AAHO creates reliable income opportunities for all 155 Afghan employees, regardless of gender, tribe or religion, at Afshar Hospital and our ten clinics.
