CIET carried out three projects in Afghanistan during the 1990s, two on land mines (1994 and 1997) and a multiple indicator cluster survey in 1997. After a hiatus of eleven years CIET returned in 2008 with a Demonstration Community-based Social Audit of Health Services in two districts of Afghanistan.
The land mines work has contributed to three publications:
