About Ministry of Public Health

The Afghanistan Mortality Survey also indicates that significant number of under-five deaths occur during the neonatal period and more than two-thirds in the post-neonatal period within first year of life. Therefore, Newborn Care is of utmost importance in reducing neonatal and infant mortality rate in Afghanistan. While consistent improvements have been achieved in antenatal care and skilled birth attendance coverage in the country; management of newborn and specifically sick newborns require drastic improvements. Based on the request of the Ministry of Public Health, the USAID funded BASICS project adapted integrated community based approaches to child and neonatal survival to Afghanistan, resulting in the Integrated Child Survival Package (ICSP).
Based on communities’ positive response, the ICSP approach gradual implementation in all PCH districts in 2010 under USAID fund. By September 2015, ICSP was being implemented in 54 districts. ICSP uses an integrated community based approach, which relies on increasing the community’s ownership of child survival, through promoting close collaboration between community health shura’s , Family Health Action Groups (FHAG) and Community Health Workers (CHWs).
Under the supervision of Child and Adolescent Health Director of MoPH, the Child Survival Consultant will provide technical support on implementation of ICSP in the target provinces. S/he will be responsible for overall planning, coordination pertaining ICSP and contribute to building capacity of heath care workers at facility and community levels.
