An assessment of the state of Primary Care in Afghanistan

This research project was made possible by a grant from The McLaren Foundation staff and statistical support was provided by Michigan State University, we thank them for their generous contributions. We were further honored and guided by discussion and approval from the late Dr. Barbara Starfield shortly before she passed away unexpectedly.

The goals of this project are to gain an understanding of the state of primary care. In order to do so, we employed the Primary Care Assessment Tool (PCAT). The initial data collection say has been completed but because of the large volume of data collected, analysis is ongoing and much work remains before submission for publication.

Stay tuned for updates.
