Maternal Health in Afghanistan


Every 30 minutes, an Afghan woman dies of childbirth-related complications. In fact, tragically, almost half of all deaths of women ages 15-49 in Afghanistan result from complications during pregnancy and childbirth.

Most of these deaths could be prevented with increased access to maternal health services.

World Vision is hard at work in Afghanistan, training midwives and implementing child survival programs in order to reduce maternal, infant, and child mortality rates. We need your help to continue improving the health of women and children in Afghanistan.

Your gift will provide training for midwives, prenatal and ongoing medical care for mothers and children, improved nutrition, immunizations, and other critical interventions for those in need. Please help save the lives of mothers and children in Afghanistan today.

At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.

The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.

Give monthly to Child & Family Health Fund to have an ongoing impact.
