Abstract

As a country recovering from conflict, Afghanistan had some of the worst health indicators in the world. In just 10 years however, despite conflict and widespread poverty, Afghanistan made significant improvements in its health indicators. Swagata Yadavar speaks to Homayoun Ludin, Afghanistan's director of public nutrition, about how focusing on breastfeeding has helped Afghanistan turn its infant mortality and child malnourishment figures around.
