Afghanistan

Afghanistan is a country program. Given the current political and social situation and immediate needs, the priority will be to provide low cost preventive and crucial public health interventions in reproductive health, including emergency obstetrical care and family planning that can be replicated locally. CATALYST is in the process of identifying the areas of reproductive health and family planning in which it hopes to be involved. Please check back later for more information.
