BRC has supported ARCS through IFRC to implement a comprehensive community based health programme in Balkh northern Afghanistan since 2008. The project seeks to improve access to safer water and sanitation promote hygiene practices and improve health awareness and first aid services at community level for 23 000 people . Activities include well and twin pit latrine construction health education clinic promotion and provision of necessary tools and training for local community members to maintain the hardware. Women are an important part of the project as their involvement is essential for the improvement of their own and their family s health. The communities have recognised this and women are fully integrated in the activities and 50% of the project volunteers are women. In 2014 it was decided to introduce a food security component into the CCBHI programme following a assessment that revealed that the target communities had significant needs to improve nutrition standards. In 2015 the programme planned to assist 236 households in Dawlatabad in Khulum districts by providing seeds and tools for establishing vegetable gardens chickens and chicken feed and trainings on poultry management and vegetable garden management. Demonstrable success and impact has encouraged other PNS to replicate the project in other provinces.
