First Veterinary Clinic in a Nangarhar District

Built under the National Area-Based Development Program, a veterinary clinic opened in the Achin district of eastern Nangarhar.

The clinic, funded by Japan, cost USD 47,461.

The residents of the district needed such a facility for their livestock-goats, sheep, cows, horses and chickens- which is the main source of their income.

According to a tribal leader Haji Pir Mohammad, the district has lost many of its animals due to the lack of a vet clinic, hurting the farmer’s economy.

The National Area-Based Development Programme (NABDP) is one of the national priority programmes of the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), funded and supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). NABDP commenced as a joint initiative of the MRRD and UNDP in 2002, with the goal of contributing to a sustainable reduction of poverty and an improvement of livelihoods in rural Afghanistan.

NABDP would work for the consolidation and sustainability of the local institution and implemented projects along with continue supporting for projects that enhance rural livelihood. The local governance component and ERDA has been identified as national priority programs through the Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) cluster
