For a healthy society



Public Advocacy 
Advocacy encompasses a wide range of activities that influence decision makers. It also includes capacity building, relationship building, membership networks, and leadership development.

 

AHDS streamlines its advocacy attempts through active membership in coordination bodies in Afghanistan; ACBAR, ANCB and AHO. In addition, AHDS takes part in sister advocacy attempts internationally; in collaboration with other non-for-profit organizations worldwide.

AHDS plays vital role in lobbying to promote an informed, healthy, and strong democratic society. We witness and respond to the impact of public policies on the people we serve, whether they are patrons of the arts or residents of a homeless shelter.

AHDS advocacy takes many forms:

Community advocacy involves changing the ideas and attitudes of the public. This is typically accomplished through education and community awareness programs.

Legal advocacy using lawsuits in the courts to protect or create rights, improve services, or raise public consciousness about issues.

Legislative advocacy that involve legislative monitoring, committee testifying, lobbying, writing position papers, networking  and coalitions, and a variety of other activities.
