Construction of Health and Education Facilities(CHEF)

OVERVIEW

The Construction of Health and Education Facilities (CHEF) project addresses the medical needs of more than two million Afghan citizens through the construction of two new hospitals, a 100-bed hospital in Gardez, and a 20 bed hospital in Paktika.  Additionally over 1 million Afghan citizens will benefit from the construction of three provincial midwife training centers in Faizabad, Khost, and Bamiyan. These health facilities will support the Ministry of Public Health in its efforts to provide urgently needed health services, including in-patient and out-patient referral and treatment.  The hospitals will also serve as training facilities for health professionals, as well as venues for medical conferences and seminars.  The education component of the CHEF project, through construction of four Provincial Teacher Training Centers (PTTC), aims to address the following teacher training goals identified by the Ministry of Education: 1) providing the proper infrastructure needed to educate trainers of teachers and teachers themselves; 2) strengthening the educational requirements of the country; and 3) increasing the quality and number of teachers.  Target PTTC’s are located in Wardak, Faryab, Nangarhar, and Parwan provinces.
