Between 2002 and 2021, ARTF has delivered support through the Government’s national priority programs and drove some of the fastest progress in the world in reducing infant mortality and increasing children’s enrollment in school.     

Since 2021, ARTF has taken a programmatic approach to support essential services and improve development outcomes for the Afghan people through UN agencies and selected NGO partners. ARTF relies on multiple development assistance instruments, including investments in health, education, community development, food security  and other priority sectors.  

ARTF leverages funding in grant form from the International Development Association (IDA), the World Bank's concessionary lending arm, and complements multilateral programming through other international financial institutions, the United Nations Country Team, and donor partners' bilateral programming.
