With its projects, DCA Livestock Programs aims to cover a large part of Afghanistan. From 2014 through 2018, DCA supported the livestock owners in 30 out of 34 provinces, thus almost nationwide. Since then, regretfully, the geographical scope has diminished to 19 provinces, due to the ending of two large projects.
For more than 30 years, DCA has implemented a large number of projects to improve livestock health and productivity. Most of these projects offer an integrated package of paravet (refresher) training, establishment and support of veterinary field units, and extension services. Also, the development of livestock value chains has become an essential component of the DCA projects.
DCA usually implements some 6 to 8 projects at the same time, which are funded by various international donors.
