Afghanistan Community-Based Postpartum Family Planning Program Description

Afghanistan's constellation of poor national health indicators in maternal, child, and reproductive health, the need to bring services closer to the community to expand accessibility and the evidence demonstrating the benefits of FP on improving maternal and child health outcomes, suggest that the country would benefit from the expansion of community-based FP services. Addressing unmet need in the postpartum period is imperative to improve maternal and child survival.
