Afghanistan - Service Provision Assessment Survey 2018-2019

Primary tabs

The 2018-19 AfSPA collected information on the availability, readiness, and quality of health services in national specialty and provincial/regional hospitals, including major private sector hospitals in seven urban areas of Afghanistan. The assessment focused on family planning and maternal and child health (FP & MCH) services, as well as surgery, pediatrics, emergency, intensive care, institutional delivery, and newborn care in hospitals. At the same time, the assessment provided baseline key information for monitoring these services in the future. The assessment also intended to support dissemination and utilization of the results for the planning and management of FP & MCH programs. Similarly, the assessment supports health planners and program managers to address prioritized weaknesses and develop intervention for public and private hospital programs in the surveyed areas. A long-term objective is to institutionalize capacity to carry out national level assessments and use data for further analysis and future assessment planning, with diminishing external support. The specific objectives of the 2018-19 Afghanistan Service Provision Assessment (2018-19 AfSPA) were to: - Collect data on services in national specialty, regional, and provincial hospitals - Collect data on services in private hospitals - Collect data on specific services related to maternal and child health within the Afghanistan hospital system in order to set a baseline for service availability, readiness, and compliance with quality standards

In total, 160 facilities (38 public hospitals, 57 private hospitals, and 65 private clinics) were included in the study from all seven provinces. The frame was obtained from the Health Management Information Systems (HMIS) department of MoPH and verified with the private health coordination office, but it is possible that private facilities will exceed those listed in the frame.
