Work context

Presentation of the country: As a politically fragmented, natural disaster-prone nation, Afghanistan has long faced levels of chronic insecurity, internal displacement, and widespread poverty that has subjected its populations to ongoing hardships and recurring humanitarian crises. Communities remain food insecure for a range of reasons, from the cumulative impacts of multiple droughts, erratic climate shocks and seasonal flooding, a lack of infrastructure and limited access to markets. Although education and health have improved in urban areas, rural populations remain largely vulnerable to maternal and perinatal mortality and infant mortality and diseases, malnutrition being a major concern.

Presentation of the mission: In 2017, ACF implemented several integrated project in Nutrition and Health, WASH, FSL and MHCP responding to the needs of the most vulnerable in Helmand, Ghor and Kabul. Moreover, ACF extended its ERM approach into more provinces such as Helmand, Ghor, Daykundi, Nimroz and Bamyan. In Kabul, ACF focused its activities in Kabul Informal Settlements through a WASH and Nutrition project and in 26 Health Facilities via a Nutrition project, both aiming to reduce Acute Malnutrition. In Ghor, ACF secured an integrated long-term project to implement Nutrition, WASH and MHCP activities to prevent mother and child mortality and morbidity. In Helmand, ACF implemented three integrated projects in WASH and Nutrition, one also including MHCP. In November 2017, a new integrated project with Nutrition, FSL, WASH and MHCP activities targeting 47,881 beneficiaries (without double counting) started to be implemented.

Security, working and living conditions: ACF is operationally working in 3 bases: Kaboul, Helmand and Ghor with its coordination team located in Kaboul. In total, the Afghanistan mission counts 400 national staff and 12 international staff.
