Rebuilding Afghanistan's Healthcare Infrastructure
5 mins (40.12 MB)
After a quarter century of civil conflict in Afghanistan, much of the health infrastructure was decimated. The Aga Khan Development Network and its partners are helping rebuild it from the ground up, working with the government on health facilities from primary to tertiary with midwifery courses, new nursing and medical curriculums, new clinics, and hospitals. This film looks at how the training of midwives in Bamyan province is helping address some of the highest infant and maternal mortality rates in the world.
