Promoting Maternal and Child Health through Beauty Parlors in Afghanistan

  • PREVIEW
  • READ ARTICLE
  • OPEN PDF

ISSN

Beauty parlors are used successfully in Africa for family planning promotion and HIV prevention activities1 and in the USA to prevent noncommunicable diseases. The sense of comfort about discussing family health issues
and the opportunity for follow-up conversations make parlors a uniquely safe space for women to address a variety of maternal and child health issues including malnutrition. Trained, motivated and socially rewarded parlor owners make the intervention financially sustainable. Integrated through a referral network of trained private providers and pharmacies, parlors can effectively mobilize clients. Though parlor clients are on average wealthier and more educated than the overall population, myths and misconceptions are pervasive and continue to hinder healthy behaviors across wealth quintiles.
