KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The European Union (EU) has made available EUR 41 million ($45,066,380) to support basic healthinfo-icon and nutrition services for the Afghan population through the health programme managed by the Ministry of Public Health known as SEHAT (System Enhancement for Health Action in Transition).

A statement from the EU said on Tuesday main objective of SEHAT is to strengthen the overall capacity of the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) to deliver a comprehensive package of health services to the Afghan population, with a focus on increasing the access of mothers and children to reproductive, maternal and child health services as well as improving operations, construction, renovation and maintenance of health facilities and equipment, upgrading quality control laboratories and strengthening MoPH human resources.

This latest EU contribution comes on top of a previous commitment of EUR 61.5 million already granted under the SEHAT programme in 2013.
