Kabul, Afghanistan – The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Ministry of Public Health announced a partnership that will enable the Afghan government to better identify local revenue streams in order to provide sustainable, affordable health services to its citizens.

The new five-year, $37.9 million Health Sector Resiliency (HSR) Project funded by USAID will help the Ministry of Public Health foster a strengthened, reformed, and increasingly self-reliant Afghan health system. The project primarily focuses on management, finance, and human resources for health.

Afghanistan has made remarkable achievements over the last 14 years in expanding access to health care services, which are now accessible even to communities in highly difficult terrain. Government funding for healthcare is low, and Afghan families are burdened with paying high out-of-pocket costs for services. Due to variations in quality and standards, Afghan families also spend up to $285 million annually for health care abroad.
