Sustaining quality health services for the people of Turkmenistan through procurement of medical products for the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan
The aim of the project is to ensure quality health care services for the population of Turkmenistan through uninterrupted and quality supplies for TB, HIV, reproductive health, safe blood, and viral hepatitis C services. The project will procure the health products for the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry of Turkmenistan for the needs of the respective services throughout the country. The project will complement the UNDP TB project funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
The Government of Turkmenistan is committed to fight against tuberculosis and other communicable diseases and funds the majority of the relevant programmes. The most important factor is the steady increase of domestic investments in health care which is the basis for sustainable work of the healthcare systems. Within the Saglyk Programme, priority is placed, inter alia, on the anti-tuberculosis activities, acute respiratory diseases and sexually transmitted infections. It is well noted that the Programme will improve funding of the pharmaceutical provisions for the cancer, diabetes, viral hepatitis, tuberculosis, hemophilia and other patients.
Procurement through the UNDP is justified for the following considerations: 1) ensure the quality of health products, since the UNDP buys the products from manufacturers that have been qualified by the WHO and comply with the environmental protection standards; 2) achieve economic efficiency, since at the corporate level, UNDP has long-term agreements with manufacturers and makes consolidated orders for many countries, which allows negotiating low competitive prices; UNDP also has long-term agreements with international freight forwarders, which makes it possible to transport products in a well-timed and price-saving manner, and in compliance with the temperature requirements; 3) ensure transparent procurement, risk management, insurance and finance management.
