The Department for International Development (DFID) is supporting programmes that directly benefit women's organisations and activities in Afghanistan. Our funding to the International Planned Parenthood Foundation and WOMANKIND Worldwide is supporting civil society organisations in Afghanistan and elsewhere address the human rights and practical needs of women and girls. During my recent visit to Afghanistan I launched a major new civil society programme which will help Afghan organisations to hold their government to account. The programme will particularly target women (and youth) and it is expected that many women's organisations will benefit. In addition, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) provides support to the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission and the Human Rights Support Unit at the Ministry of Justice. The FCO also provides support to paralegal services working with women and girls in adult prisons and juvenile detention centres.
