Procurement of medicines and health products for the control of noncommunicable diseases (NCD) in Turkmenistan through the United Nations Development Programme

This project will provide technical support to the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan in the implementation of the National Programme for control of noncommunicable diseases in Turkmenistan through procurement of medical products for prevention and treatment of:

  • Cardio-vascular diseases;
  • Oncological diseases;
  • Endocrinological diseases;
  • Respiratory diseases;
  • Neurological diseases;
  • Other noncommunicable diseases, if required

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. According to a WHO survey 2020, prevention and treatment services for NCDs have been severely disrupted everywhere since the pandemic began. Unavailability/stock outs of essential medicines or technologies disrupted NCD services in one in five countries. 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.
