Afghanistan

As Afghanistan rebuilds after decades of neglect, a health care system that is resilient and responsive will be needed to provide care to the population. In the early 2000s, URC implemented a set of health initiatives in Afghanistan, including the global and regional components of the Health Care Improvement Project (HCI). URC provided a range of services, including quality improvement, health systems strengthening, health communication and behavior change and research and evaluation. URC has since joined a partnership to strengthen the country’s capacity to identify and respond to biological and chemical threats through the Cooperative Biological Engagement Program, and lead a Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA)-funded project, providing technical support to strengthen pharmaceutical human resources planning, management, regulation, development, and performance.
