Client: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)
Beneficiary: Ministry of Health, Tajikistan
Since 1995, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) has been actively involved in Tajikistan. In addition to its economic challenges, Tajikistan's healthcare system is fragile, resulting in limited healthcare services and institutional resources. Maternal and infant mortality rates are alarmingly high.
To address these issues, GIZ is dedicated to stabilizing the healthcare system with a particular emphasis on maternal and child health. Through collaboration with Tajikistan's Ministry of Health and the EU, GIZ is actively improving primary healthcare through numerous initiatives, including the advancement of medical training and the procurement of medical equipment for this training.
MEDILab procured 20 obstetric birthing torsos simulators, including: newborn baby models, obstetric examination simulators, general doctor advanced childbirth manikin delivery training simulators, clinical female pelvic trainers, and episiotomy and perineal laceration trainers. These simulators are integral to strengthening personnel skill development, focusing on childbirth, postpartum care management, and handling birthing complications.
The procurement of cutting-edge simulation devices supports the provision of comprehensive medical training, enabling healthcare professionals in Tajikistan to gain hands-on experience in realistic scenarios. By enhancing their skills and knowledge, the simulators contribute to reducing maternal and neonatal complications, ensuring safer childbirths, and improving overall healthcare outcomes in Tajikistan.
