Health Care Sector

WADAN is a dedicated organization committed to improving the healthcare sector in Afghanistan. One of the key focus areas for WADAN is addressing drug dependency as a cross-cutting issue. In the year 2022, WADAN aims to collaborate with various stakeholders to further its mission and continue running Drug Treatment Centers (DTCs) across the country.

The primary objective of these DTCs is to reduce drug dependency in Afghanistan. WADAN plans to achieve this by operating various types of drug treatment centers, including residential, home-based, rural-based, and outpatient facilities. These centers will specifically cater to women, female adolescents, and children who are affected by substance use disorders (SUD).

The projects implemented by WADAN will be strategically located across different provinces in Afghanistan, ensuring access to drug prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation services for drug users. The focus will be on providing comprehensive care and support to drug dependents, with a particular emphasis on women, children, and adolescent females.

WADAN is dedicated to following evidence-based practices in the delivery of treatment and aftercare services. This means that the services provided at the DTCs will be based on proven methods and approaches, ensuring the best possible outcomes for patients.

To ensure the effectiveness of these projects, WADAN will pay close attention to bed occupancies in the DTCs. This will help determine the capacity of each center to accommodate individuals seeking treatment and ensure that appropriate resources and support are available.

Through its comprehensive approach to addressing drug dependency, WADAN aims to make significant strides in improving the healthcare sector in Afghanistan. By providing accessible and evidence-based treatment and rehabilitation services, WADAN hopes to contribute to the overall well-being and recovery of individuals affected by drug dependency, particularly women, children, and adolescent females.
