The National Programme on the Development of Family Medicine 2011-2015 in Tajikistan was established with the goal of ensuring the sustainable development of primary health care according to the principles of family medicine.
In 2015, in the context of the Family Medicine Programme’s final year, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of the Population of Tajikistan embarked on a review of the achievements of the Programme and reflection on opportunities and next steps to accelerate the pace, scale and sustainability of changes.
This document reports the findings of this review. Through a mixed-methods approach, information from relevant literature, semi-structured key informant interviews, roundtable discussions and health statistics have been reviewed according to the Programme’s six priority areas to consider progress achieved so far in family medicine, identify opportunities for further improvement and determine next steps for the continued development of health services delivery in Tajikistan.
