Tajikistan: Two Hospital Hand Over Ceremonies

Hospital hand over ceremonies were held at the end of June for Hamadoni Central District Hospital and Farkhor Central District Hospital with participation of the First Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Tajikistan, the Minister of Health, the German Ambassador to the Republic of Tajikistan, KfW representatives and local government officials. Both public hospitals are the last among four hospitals to be rehabilitated and equipped under the KfW-funded and EPOS/GOPA/Irfat-implemented Mother and Child Health Project Phase I.

The €10M Mother and Child Project, launched in 2009, supports the Tajik Government in modernising hospital structures and the provision of improved mother and child health services in the Khatlon province. The project supports improving the overall health status of the population, thereby helping the country to reach Millennium Development Goals IV and V. Additional financing agreements of €31.5M were signed this year to support phase two of the project.
