Purpose of and objectives of the grant

1. The project will support the current health system by upgrading two PHs (Ghazni and Baghlan) as well as 1 DH and 2 CHCs to effectively offer trauma care services. Meanwhile, the project will maintain three FATPs at three strategic levels chiefly covering strategically identified three districts of Baghlan (Baghlan -e Markazai, Doshi/Khenjan and Chashma -e Shair to cover Dahna e Ghori too). These FATPs will significantly enhance access to the victims of war and conflicts and strengthen referral system. As a result, morbidity, and disability due to conflicts and war will be reduced remarkably.
2. The project will significantly assist the BPHS health facilities to take active part in strengthening referrals to the nearby FATPs and trauma center. The experience has shown that BPHS has been potentially effective in reducing the delay in taking war victims to the nearby FATPs and trauma centers. The project will be very effective in attaining the objective of this intervention by strengthening a robust referral system.

Prompt referrals to higher level of health facilities have proven very useful in reducing mortality and morbidity.
