Health
AKDN began working on various health related initiatives as far back as 2003. Many of these initiatives have had to be suspended given the current situation. However, today, AKDN continues to work on health promotion activities particularly in the areas of maternal and childcare, and in providing water, sanitation and hygiene facilities. The text on this page describes activities that were undertaken by AKDN prior to the current situation.
