Country Overview

CDC partnered with the Government of Tajikistan in 1995 to strengthen the capacity to detect, prevent, and control disease and respond to public health threats in Central Asia. In 2010, CDC began implementing HIV programs supported through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief to help Tajikistan achieve HIV epidemic control. These include evidence-based demonstration programs to identify cost-effective modes of service delivery and expanding HIV prevention and treatment services for populations at high-risk for acquiring HIV infection. CDC supports the Ministry of Health in the following areas: HIV prevention, including Medication Assisted Treatment of opioid addiction; HIV counseling and testing; laboratory strengthening; HIV care and treatment; and strategic information systems.
