About Ministry of Public Health

Since 2002 three main donors of health sector, namely, The European Union (EU), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the World Bank (WB) have played a pivotal role in financing health services and health system development in Afghanistan. Significant improvements have been made in the health sector of Afghanistan. Improvements are seen in the access to key maternal health services such as antenatal care (32% in 2006 to 54% in 2012) and institutional deliveries (15% in 2006 to 40% in 2012). Despite these major accomplishments, many challenges remain. For instance, full immunization coverage of children has not increased in the past half-decade regardless of the investments made in the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI).
SEHAT is jointly financed by the World Bank, EU and the USAID. It is financing the implementation of the BPHS and EPHS through contracting out and contracting in arrangements both in rural and urban areas in provinces the project is also strengthening the national health system and MOPH’s capacity at central and provincial levels, so it can effectively perform its stewardship functions in the sector.
Strengthening pharmaceuticals service and regulation are the top priorities for the MoPH. Despite the role that to regulate the pharmaceutical sector, there is significant fragmentation in the system: inspection and regulatory system needed to control the sector are scattered across various MoPH departments.
