I had discussions in Kabul last week with Afghan Ministers on a range of subjects including health outcomes. Officials met with the acting Minister of Public Health in June 2011 to discuss maternal mortality issues. The ministry is prioritising women and children's health with a focus on reducing maternal mortality, as well as neonatal and under-five mortality. It has developed a new reproductive health policy and strategy to run from 2011 to 2013. We expect new data on maternal mortality in Afghanistan to be published by the Government of Afghanistan in the coming months.
