Health Services Delivery

Health Management Information System

Overview

Availability of health information is essential in planning and strengthening health services. A computerized countrywide decentralized health management information system (HMIS) was developed in Afghanistan in 2003 - 2005. The HMIS was designed and developed by the MoPH HMIS and Management Sciences for Health (MSH) supported by the United States for International Agency (USAID). Other international agencies providing health services in Afghanistan such as WHO, UNICEF, World Bank and the MoPH provincial units have contributed in development of this system. The objective of HMIS system is to provide country-wide health information so MoPH and other health services providers make informed decisions in improving health services in Afghanistan. The HMIS system now reports from 95% health facilities around the country.

This page is designed to provide you some essential information in the form of Maps downloadable MS Excel format data. Maps are in PDF format which is not editable. Excel files are for downloads so one could do further data analysis. For any other information, please contact MoPH HMIS Division.

National HIV & AIDS Control Program

NACP Vision:

To reduce the spread, mortality, stigma and discrimination resulting from HIV&AIDS in the country.

NACP Mission:

To maintain low prevalence of HIV positive cases in the country.

NACP Goal:

By Jaddi 1389 (end 2010), a low prevalence of HIV positive cases (<0.5%) in the population will be maintained in order to reduce mortality and morbidity associated with HIV&AIDS Afghanistan faces a high risk of an HIV epidemic. Despite a low HIV prevalence in the country, Afghanistan is at high-risk for spread of HIV infection for several reasons: almost 3 decades of protracted armed conflicts, huge numbers of people displaced internally and externally; poor economy, open borders, poppy cultivation and use of injecting drugs and lack of blood safety and injection practices. In responding to the challenge, Afghanistan Ministry of Public Health in 2003 established the National AIDS Control Program under the Directorate of Communicable Diseases Control. The NACP is now delivering services through 24 contracts in 8 key provinces of the country namely Kabul, Herat, Kunduz, Mazar, Kandahar, Ghazni, Badakhshan and Nangarhar. 10 Voluntary Counseling and Testing Centers (VCCT), 15 Drop-in-centers and 2 ART centers in Kabul and Herat have been actively providing services. Up to date, there are 556 HIV positive cases reported from different sources and 9 people have died of AIDS.For further information on the NACP and addressing questions.
