For a healthy society

Public Advocacy


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. 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. For further details please click here
