The United Nations, in its annual report analyzing Afghanistan’s situation in 2023, stated that despite the “tireless efforts” of the organization and its partners to address issues in Afghanistan, the country continues to grapple with “complex and multifaceted challenges.”

The report titled “UN Annual Results Report for Afghanistan in 2023” was released on Thursday, the 18th of April, revealing that in 2024, approximately 15.8 million people will face food insecurity and emergency levels of vulnerability.

Citing Gallup survey results and polls conducted by UN agencies in Afghanistan, the organization concluded that the “average life expectancy in the past five years [in Afghanistan] has decreased.”

The year 2024 is described as “highly challenging” for the people of Afghanistan, encompassing deep levels of need and emergency poverty levels. The UN report states: Afghans cite access to food as their most essential need. Millions who are unable to afford or produce basic sustenance face hunger and malnutrition.

The organization emphasizes the urgency of upholding human rights principles in Afghanistan and stresses the importance of remaining committed to human rights, gender equality, and women’s empowerment in 2024.
