Afghanistan

As a knowledge driven Dutch aid-organization, Health Works  works on the sustainable (re)construction and rehabilitation of health care in areas disrupted by war or disaster. Also in Afghanistan we work with ‘evidence-based’ interventions on accessible health care. After all, reconstruction starts with health. 

Health Works is one of the largest health NGOs in Afghanistan and has been working in a developmental mode in Afghanistan since 1993. We work closely with other NGOs, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) and local communities, in implementing evidence-based projects that will contribute to the long-term development of strategies and policies at the national level. We work particularly in the area of supporting primary health care, providing mental health care and combating diseases.

In the past years security is a recurrent topic. For Health Works key to success is local population support: local communities are direct partners in (re)building health systems. Afghanistan also is the biggest project country for Health Works with over eight offices and various warehouses spread among the country.
