In Afghanistan, it is estimated that 43 percent of the population lacks health services within 10 kilometres or a three hour walk. In these areas, UNFPA is piloting the Family Health House model. These are community-based health structures serving 1,500–4,000 people and staffed by a trained Community Midwife recruited from the local population who provides reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health services. The FHH are intended as sustainable community-led initiatives, where candidates for Community Midwives are nominated and supported by residents, who also bear a third of the costs. The Community Midwives receive 26 months of training and are supported by male and female volunteer community health workers who provide health information and public awareness activities to their counterparts in the community; treat some basic illnesses; and refer patients and clients to FHH and high-level health facilities. Whilst the Community Midwives are in training, their communities are served by a mobile support team. Once the midwives take up their posts, mobile health teams provide support services, including vaccinations. The contribution, approved by Delibera Comitato Direzionale n. 59 of 08 June 2012, is derived from the reallocation of residual funds already 'granted to a UNFPA Afghanistan, respectively for programs "Census of population and housing (AID 8213.01.5)" and "Improving Family Planning and Reproductive Health (AID 8315.01.6); read more close
