The Reproductive Health Directorate is one of the core components of Afghanistan Health Ministry where it contributes to the reduction of maternal mortality and morbidity in Afghanistan.
National Reproductive Health Policy( 2006- 2009) was known to be one of the key documents of the Ministry of Public Health and was made possible by the Ministry of Public Health with technical efforts of the entire health partners including donor agencies, UN, and NGOs. So, as to cover other areas connected to Reproductive Health and to satisfy current needs, this policy got revised. Now the revised policy is ready to be implemented for the years 2012 through 2016.
Based on the revised policy, all Afghan families have the right to have access to the highest reproductive health standards. Reflecting the steady commitments of Ministry of Public Health and its partners, this policy aims at providing needed opportunities so as to enable all Afghan families to have access to quality reproductive health services.
