The long-lasting conflict in Afghanistan has resulted in a fragmented health system unable to meet the needs and expectations of the Afghan population. Since the inception of a new government in 2002, the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) has made significant progress in establishing a primary and secondary healthcare system. The establishment and implementation of the Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS) and Essential Package of Hospital Services (EPHS) have translated policy into service delivery, bringing drastic improvements in access to and quality of health care, resulting in significant health indicator improvements in Afghanistan.
