Afghanistan is an Asian country with a population of 31 million inhabitants. Due the unstable situation in recent years the living standard is very low. Therefore, Afghanistan has a very low GDP per capita.

Despite a very low HIV rate, the life expectancy is very low and the drinking water and sanitation conditions are terrible. The education system is not good either, with a very short school life expectancy, low literacy rates for both adults and youth and a very low tertiary education enrolment ratio.
