DATES: July 2008 - January 2014
PARTNERS: Ministry of Public Health (MoPH)
Through a host-country contract mechanism, USAID’s Partnership Contracts for Health (PCH) project supports the delivery of the 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, sub-health center clinics, 5 provincial hospitals, and approximately 5,000 health posts in 13 provinces. USAID currently supports the implementation of the BPHS and EPHS in Badakhshan, Baghlan, Bamyan, Faryab, Ghazni, Hirat, Jawzjan, Kabul, Kandahar, Khost, Paktika, Paktya, and Takhar provinces. The facilities are run by non-governmental organizations that are contracted by the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH). The BPHS and EPHS programs are the MoPH’s national strategies to deliver and expand health services to address the most common health problems throughout Afghanistan. The MoPH is the first government agency within Afghanistan approved to receive direct funding from USAID.
