Healthy Transitions for Afghan Adolescent Females

Commitment by

Afghan Institute Of Learning (Ail)

In September 2008, the Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) committed to provide health education to 100,000 primarily rural Afghan adolescent females over a 24-month period. AIL also committed to providing four day, in-depth health workshops to 780 adolescent females or their teachers, as well as providing ten-day in-depth human rights and leadership workshops to 520 adolescent females or their teachers during the same 24-month period.
As of 2011, AIL has offered health workshops in Kabul, Heart, Bamian, and Mazar-e-Sharif, covering reproductive health, general health, and self-immolation prevention. As a result of these programs, vaccinations have risen, infant and child mortality has declined, and more women are going to treatment centers for help. This program has provided health education to over 300,000 women since its inception.
