Ghor residents suffer from high levels of poverty, which increases the prevalence of malnutrition in mothers and children. In addition, it also accelerate other diseases that are caused by poverty.

Poverty and health are inextricably linked. If people's health is improved and their incomes rise, this will improve children’s education and reduce poverty.

This effective and transparent mechanism provides cash assistance of 500 AFN for female clients for the purpose of helping poor families through 36 health facilities (2 District Hospital, 26 Basic Health Centers and 8 Comprehensive Health Centers) in Ghor province.
