Recently, CWS-P/A’s Comprehensive Health Center (CHC) in Sultanpur, Nangarhar Province received a 100% rating in a quality assurance assessment conducted by the Ministry of Public Health. Moreover, in the eastern region only CWS-P/A’s Nangahar-Laghman Health Project (NLHP) secured the highest rating. The CHC provides quality mother and child health services through curative, preventive, and reproductive healthcare. In addition, the center also offers dental services and continuous health education at the community level.
CWS-P/A recognizes the services of dedicated staff members like Dr. Sayed Ibrar and Ghutai. While the NLHP through its health centers has focused on the treatment and control of communicable diseases, maternal and child care, and more recently dental care among other activities, CWS-P/A has made community participation a fundamental aspect of its work in Afghanistan. This strategy is helping marginalized communities in many ways but particularly by improving women’s access to quality health services.
