With support from DANIDA (The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs) DAC operates a health care system for about 500.000 people in the districts of Gozarah, Pasthoon Zarghoon and Obei in Herat province. The system which is gradually developed from 1998 – 2015 has more than 300 Afghan employees in a district hospital, 19 health clinics and 181 health posts. Furthermore 362 health care workers in the villages and three mobile teams are connected to the project.
Besides DAC builds and operates a dormitory with room for 116 female students, primarily within health care education. The committee also runs a small project with vocational training of women in sowing and embroidery. DAC also for a period of time supports very poor families and IDPs (Internally Displaced People) in refugee camps. The work is supported by DANIDA and DFID and from membership fees and presents from committee members.
In June 2015 MOPH entrusts its health care system to the Afghan NGO BDN (Bakhtar Development Network), who won the bid for delivering health care service in all of Herat province.
