Enhancing Primary Health Care Services in Tajikistan

01.04.2017 - 31.03.2021

Health indicators in Tajikistan are among the poorest in Central Asia. The health system suffers from poor quality of health care services, chronic underfunding, and the implementation of the ongoing reforms is slow. The SDC project supports these reforms by increasing the planning and management capacities of health institutions at all levels, investing in basic rehabilitation of infrastructure, and by empowering the population to take responsibility for their own health and to hold the state accountable.

Waterborne diseases are widespread and negatively influence population‘s health. Since a decade Switzerland is assisting the country to improve water governance both at community and policy levels. This project will improve access to and quality of drinking water and sanitation for 70000 people, living in isolated mountainous areas of Eastern Tajikistan.

Through this project, Switzerland will accompany the Government in realizing a state system providing free legal aid, which will allow the vulnerable (poor) individuals in Tajikistan to better protect their rights and in particular to claim various benefits (e.g. pensions, child allowances). This system will replace the current NGO provided legal aid services. A space for dialogue between civil society and state authorities will also be preserved and will contribute to addressing further legal challenges faced by the population.


Prevention of Domestic Violence in Tajikistan

01.10.2016 - 30.09.2019

Domestic violence is widespread in Tajik society (70% of women experience domestic violence in their life). Despite the adoption of the law on domestic violence in 2013, the Government lacks coordinated mechanisms for its implementation. In the exit phase the project will shift from NGO based service provision towards supporting the state coordination mechanisms, the establishment of an effective public referral system providing services to the victims, and public awareness activities with a focus on contributing to behavioural changes.
