Taloqan, North Afghanistan. Young women are trained to be midwives on a 18 month course. After qualifying they return to their remote villages where they are often the only health worker. In a country where child mortality rates are the highest in the world and where many women and/or their babies die in pregnancy, their skills will save lives and enable women to deliver safely.
