Part of this is ensuring that newborns access postnatal care and necessary vaccinations. In Afghanistan, Fatima hadn’t had her ten month old seen by a health worker since the day she was born. She is filled with gratitude for the community health worker who visited her home and told her about the importance of protecting newborns against infection through vaccinations. The health worker also told Fatima that this care is provided at a new PWS&D supported health facility only two kilometres away. “I would not have known how important vaccinations are for children,” shares Fatima.
