Ashgabat, Turkmenistan: The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Turkmenistan in cooperation with the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan continues to strengthen the capacity and preparedness of health system in Turkmenistan. In the framework of the project “COVID-19 response in Turkmenistan”, funded by the loan of the World Bank, UNDP provided a batch of laboratory reagents for general blood analysis that will be distributed to both central and velayat laboratories which will strengthen basic laboratory services throughout the country. Total amount of the provided reagents is around 1 million 300 thousand USD.
The provision of laboratory reagents is part of a broader effort by UNDP Turkmenistan to improve the quality of healthcare services in the country. Basic laboratory services are essential for diagnosing and treating a wide range of diseases, and this support will help ensure that these services are accessible to all residents of Turkmenistan including rural and remote communities.
