About Afghan Family Guidance Association |AFGA:

The Afghan Family Guidance Association (AFGA) was founded in 1968 and is a non-governmental, nonprofit, and apolitical organization in Afghanistan. From its foundation, AFGA has worked in the area of reproductive health and rights, and it recently joined the International Planned Parenthood Federation as an associate member (IPPF).

Due to war and violence in the nation, AFGA operations were put on hold for 10 years (1992–2002), but they were restored in 2002 with financial assistance from the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF).

With initiatives in more than 180 nations, the IPPF is an association of 151 family planning organizations known as Member Organizations. The IPPF is still the world’s biggest civil society supplier of resources and services related to reproductive health.
