One of the most important areas of medical services is the provision of first aid to the population, for which ambulances are essential.
Along with providing the country’s health facilities with modern medical equipment, the Government of Tajikistan is also taking important and timely measures for the development of primary health care.
As part of bilateral cooperation between the Governments of Tajikistan and Japan, 54 ambulances adapted to mountainous conditions have been transferred to the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of the Population of Tajikistan under the grant project of the Japan International Cooperation Agency.
These vehicles include a defibrillator, a tonometer, an oxygen cylinder, a patient transport bed, and a general set of resuscitation kits to provide first aid to patients.
It is expected that another 40 such ambulances will arrive in the country soon.
The handover ceremony was held on March 18 at the Istiklol Health Complex, which was attended by the leadership of the ministry, representatives of the Embassy of Japan in Tajikistan, JICA and other officials.
It was expressed satisfaction with the mutually beneficial cooperation between the two countries, explaining this initiative as a continuation of friendly relations.
Some of these vehicles have already been delivered to Hamadoni, Kulob, Ayni, Jamoliddin Balkhi, and the rest of the vehicles will be delivered to other cities and districts.
It should be noted that the availability of such ambulances will make a significant contribution to the further improvement of medical services to the population in different parts of the country.
