As stated by the World Bank, the Project Development Objective is to increase the utilization and quality of essential health services in Afghanistan.
The proposed Additional Financing (AF) for the amount of US$267 million will be financed through the Afghanistan Resilience Trust Fund (ARTF) for US$247 million and the Global Financing Facility (GFF) for US$20 million. The AF will entail (a) revising the PDO wording to add nutrition in addition to health services, (b) adding a new component to promote nutrition and health service use among vulnerable pregnant women and mothers of young children, (c) adding a new implementing partner (WFP) for the new component, (d) revising the scope of components 1 and 2 given available funding and ADB parallel financing, (e) adding disbursement categories for the new component; (f) extending the closing date to
March 31, 2025, and (g) revising the results framework to reflect the project’s expanded timeline and revised scope.
The clients and implementing agencies are UN agencies - namely, the UNICEF and the WFP - that work to provide humanitarian assistance in emergency contexts worldwide.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF THE WORLD BANK
The World Bank Inspection Panel is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by a World Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
