On December 15, one of the larger health facilities in Vakhsh, the central district hospital, was officially inaugurated by the President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon.

KfW Office Dushanbe says this project with the funding volume of 47 million somonis (4,656,230 Euros) was realized within the framework of the "Mother and Child Health/Emergency Care" program phases II-V, funded by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany through the German Development Bank (KfW) and implemented by the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of the Population of Tajikistan (MoHSPP).

The measures implemented under this project included rehabilitation and new construction along with provision of sophisticated medical and non-medical equipment for diagnosis and treatment, such as digital X-ray, ultrasound machines, incubators for newborns, respiratory equipment for children and adults.

At the same time, the project involves provision of trainings for hospital staff in the use of clinical equipment, hospital management, waste management, building and equipment maintenance by qualified international and national specialists.  In addition, partnership agreements have been developed with top-ranked institutes in Germany for training and exchange of knowledge and experience.

The construction and rehabilitation works started in 2020 by local construction company Manora Sokhtmon with the supervision and assurance of quality control from the international consulting company GOPA-Infra and were successfully completed in November of 2023.

It is important to note that KfW has been active in Tajikistan's health sector since 2003 and over the past 20 years has implemented programs within the framework of German-Tajik financial cooperation in the field of maternal and child health/emergency care, tuberculosis control, treatment and prevention of polio in the amount of 115 million euros.
