Statistical Profile of Children and Mothers in Afghanistan. Interim Edition.
United Nations Children's Fund, Kabul (Afghanistan).
This interim report is an updating of the 1977 Statistical Profile of Children and Mothers in Afghanistan. The interim report reflects the significant changes in policies brought about by the Saur Revolution establishing the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan in 1978. A comprehensive revision of the report is expected when the new government's five year plan is available. The profile presents the policy objectives of the Khalqi Government regarding children and mothers, provides the population estimates being used by government planners, and draws together the latest available data relating to the health, educational and social status of children and mothers. Information and tables are provided on mortality, birth and migration rates, health needs and institutions, water supply and environmental sanitation, housing, education, and communications. (SS)
