Tajikistan, a country in Central Asia with a total population of 8.5 million people, has a life expectancy at birth of 67 (male) and 74 (female) years. Tajikistan joined the EU-Luxembourg-WHO UHC Partnership in 2016 with a health system structured around input-based financing and significant out-of-pocket payments. With support from the Partnership to foster dialogue between ministries as well as with other country partners, Tajikistan is continuing its pivot towards a new financing mechanism that will be conducive to objectives of universal health coverage. One major element to track UHC progress will be the development and implementation of the UHC Monitoring Matrix 2016 – 2026, with baseline indicators built around the two key dimensions of UHC: service delivery and financial protection. You can access important country documents by clicking here.
