The Afghan society of OBGYN has placed improving the quality of maternal and reproductive health care as one of its top priorities.

It is widely known that Afghanistan has some of the worst maternal and newborn health indicators in the world. Approximately every 30 minutes a woman dies from causes related to pregnancy or childbirth; this place her newborn baby (if it survives the birth) at a 1 in 4 chance of dying. We must continue our efforts to reduce this terrible burden. The OBGYN envisions is to promote the health and wellbeing of women in Afghanistan and to practice the Gynecology and obstetrics. Ensuring respect for woman and advancement of their status and promoting greater involvement of women in the specialty are fundamental to work of the society. To achieve high standards of professional care, the society will commit its resource, to promotion of educational activities and to strengthening its communication the society links with other, similar, societies.
