|Overview : |
Turkmenistan is a neutral country in Central Asia with population of about 6.2 million, which gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. Tuberculosis remains an important public health problem; the TB incidence in 2011 was 51 per 100,000 population. Turkmenistan is a country with estimated high burden of TB with multi-drug resistance (MDR-TB).
The Government is committed to fight the disease and increasingly allocates financial, human and infrastructural resources for TB control. From October 2010, the government efforts on TB control are being supplemented with the Global Fund grant implemented by the UNDP. The overall goal of the UNDP/Global Fund TB project is to reduce the burden of tuberculosis in Turkmenistan by consolidation of DOTS framework, its expansion by introducing and scaling up the management of drug-resistant tuberculosis and strengthening the health system performance for effective TB control.
Printing of TB forms is a part of project printing activities.
