ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a five year plan to restore security, fight opium cultivation and help Afghanistan's development, which was launched at a conference in London. The world Food Programme said that over fifty percent of children are malnourished. The World Bank pointed out that Afghanistan's health indicators are among the worst in the world. Domestic violence against women and children has become a serious public health problem. Pro-Taliban forces in southern Afghanistan are targeting teachers, schools and parents for encouraging girls' education.
