Prior to 2002, the vast majority of health service delivery systems in Afghanistan were non-existent or informal. Basic health services were not available, and there were only a very small number of qualified health care providers in the country.

The $37 million, USAID-funded Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG)-Afghanistan Project (September 2012-June 2015) built upon the strengths and successes of previous USAID-funded projects to promote enhanced performance of health leadership at different levels of the health system. The LMG-Afghanistan Project’s focus was to provide direct technical assistance and training to mid-level leaders and managers at the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) to enhance their technical capacity and governance skills.
