About Ministry of Public Health:


Aid Coordination and Health Systems Strengthening Initiatives (AC&HSS)” is a newly established directorate, which was previously working as the HSS unit, which was mainly managing two grants (Global Fund and Gavi) and supporting the technical MoPH departments to implement the activities and also build the capacity of the respective departments. Afterwards, it has been realized that there is a profound need to upgrade the HSS unit to an authorized directorate to coordinate and create synergies among the different donor-supported projects and ensure that all activities are in line with the strategic goals of the MoPH. The newly established AC&HSS directorate is responsible for coordination and facilitation of Gavi, Global Fund, SEHATMANDI and off-budget projects within the MoPH.

Despite impressive progress in health system development and services delivery, Afghanistan still faces tremendous challenges in provision of equable quality health care. In addition to security and dependency on external support, challenges such as improved access to health care, up grading the skills of service providers, weak demand for services utilization, and gaps in stewardship role of the ministry such as properly monitoring the system at all levels, are example of these challenges. In order to strengthen the system and address the bottlenecks, the Global Alliance on Vaccination and Immunization (GAVI) and the Global Fund (GFATM) opened an opportunity to fill the gaps and strengthen their health systems.
