Improving Maternal and Child Health in Afghanistan
Narrator: Since 2001, there has been tremendous progress in Afghanistan, important reductions in infant mortality, increasing access to healthcare, the near eradication of polio and greater access to clean water.
But today, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to build on these successes. The result of lack of access to communities due to insecurity, UNICEF’s mission is unwavering to promote better health with a package of across the board interventions developed with the ministry of public health and partners.
Dr. Nadera Burhani: My hope as a woman, as a mother and as a person responsible for mother and child healthcare in Afghanistan is the reduction of mother and child mortality in our country, as well as access to health services for all.
Alia Kochi: We face many challenges. Sometimes we run out of milk but these weak children still need to be fed. We hope UNICEF continues to supply us regularly with milk and other food stuffs for the children.
Narrator: UNICEF can only achieve what it does in this challenging environment through partnerships with communities, children and the young people, NGOs, UN agencies, our national committees, government partners, donors and supporters. Everyone of us has a role to play. Unite for Children.
