Through the Community Cohesion Initiative (CCI), USAID/Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) seeks to increase resilience in areas vulnerable to insurgent exploitation by (1) strengthening ties between local actors, customary governance structures, and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) and (2) increasing cohesion among and between communities. 


USAID’s Partnership Contracts for Health (PCH) program provides on-budget support for the delivery of the Ministry of Public Health’s (MoPH) Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS) and the Essential Package of Hospital Services (EPHS) in more than 540 health facilities, including district hospitals, comprehensive health centers, basic health centers, and sub-health center clinics across Afghanistan, as well as five provincial hospitals and more than 6,000 health posts. 



The Health Systems 20/20 project, which closed in September 2012, supported the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) to identify and address financing, governance, operational, and capacity constraints in the health system.  USAID worked closely with the MoPH’s Health Economics and Financing Directorate (HEFD) to reach the goal of ensuring that Afghan citizens have access to high-quality, affordable health care and have sufficient health financing options.
