Turkmenistan to fully cover needs for contraceptives from state budget by 2017

Turkmenistan to fully cover needs for contraceptives from state budget by 2017Turkmenistan will cover national needs for modern contraceptives and other reproductive health commodities from its state budget by 2017, according to an agreement between the country’s Ministry of Health and UNFPA, the UN’s Population Fund, which was signed in Ashgabat.

UNFPA will gradually phase out its assistance for procuring reproductive health commodities over the next four years, as Turkmenistan, recently bumped up to upper-middle income country level by the World Bank, will increasingly assume financial responsibility for the supply of contraceptives.

“Turkmenistan’s willingness to fully cover these costs by 2017 does not only reflect the growing financial means of an upper-middle income country, it also underlines the Government’s commitment to further strengthening the national reproductive health system,” said Werner Haug, UNFPA’s Regional Director for Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
