Procurement of health products for the control of infectious diseases in 2021-2023 for the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan

This project will provide technical support to the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan in the procurement of health products for the needs in 2021 - 2023 to ensure quality health services in:

  • Tuberculosis;
  • HIV and reproductive health;
  • Safe blood transfusion;
  • Viral hepatitis C;
  • Other health programmes, if required,

The project will complement the UNDP TB project funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, and as such aims to ensure full transition of the Global Fund TB programme to domestic funding by end-2024, including technical assistance, capacity building, social contracting with civil society organizations, and adherence support to TB patients to ensure quality, continuation and sustainability of the Global Fund programme in Turkmenistan.

At present continuous and quality-assured health services are of particular concern worldwide as the COVID-19 pandemic caused “supply shock” due to disruption of global manufacturing and transportation of goods. The procurement of health products in this project will contribute to the implementation of Preparedness and Response Plan of Turkmenistan to Acute Respiratory Infection and Immediate socio-economic response plan to acute infectious disease as both set the quality and access to essential health services for the population of Turkmenistan as the top priority.
