Short Description: Afghanistan has one of the most overstretched health systems in the world, resulting in an estimated six million people having no or insucient access to healthcare. Major healthcare issues include acute respiratory illnesses, diarrheal diseases and malnutrition; these issues are compounded by the major shortfall in healthcare provision. Existing healthcare facilities do not provide sucient capacity to meet the health needs of the population, and many of these facilities are in urgent need of expansion and restoration.
