General Directorates - Ministry of Public Health Afghanistan

General Directorates

The General Directorates (GD) serve as the implementing arms of the MOPH, enabling concerned departments to examine their mandates, policies, budgets, programs, projects, services and key aspects of operation to ensure that:

  • The BPHS, the EPHS, and all relevant policies are effectively implemented at all levels of the health sector
  • The rate of morbidity and mortality is reduced, especially that of women and children.
  • Community participation in health services improves; making Community- based Health Care (CBHC) a reality.

The General Directorates have direct responsibility for the staff falling under them and are directly accountable to the concerned deputy minister for the overall performance of their departments.
