Many people continue to suffer from insecurity, insalubrious housing and limited access to drinking water, electricity, medical care, education and employment.
In 2016, over 1,900 accidents involving mine, explosive devices or explosive remnants of war were reported. The majority of victims were civilians and 42% were children.
The war, the insecurity due to day-to-day violence, and drought have forced 2.6 million Afghans into exile. Almost 1.5 million people have been internally displaced within the country and in 2016, over 600,000 left their homes.
