Family Welfare Centers (FWCs)

AFGA runs nine static clinics across Afghanistan, 5 of which are in Kabul and one each in Nangarhar, Balkh, Parwan, and Herat. These clinics are based within government hospitals.


We offer a quality integrated package of essential services (IPES) to clients, which includes family planning counseling and consultation, post-abortion care, Sexually Transmitted Infections testing, counseling and management including HIV/AIDS testing and prevention counseling, gynecological services such as breast and cervical cancer screening, and ante-natal and post-natal care and counseling as well as specialized GBV counseling and screening services. Each clinic is staffed by a specialist gynecologist, a trained midwife, and support staff. AFGA delivers rights-based integrated RH services including FP, HIV, PAC, and counselling services through nine static clinics.


Through its 9 static clinics, AFGA provides above 1 million reproductive health services each year. The Afghan government, specifically the Ministry of Public Health and the UNFPA are partners of AFGA in these clinics. AFGA runs these static clinics through its core funds received from the IPPF. Due to the success of the model, AFGA plans to expand static clinics, to other provinces of Afghanistan. In 2023, AFGA provided 1,431,653 to 308,142 clients through 9 Family Welfare Centers (FWCs).
