The national strategy of health of the population of the Republic of Tajikistan for 2010 - 2020, hereinafter referred to as (Strategy), generalizes long-term goals of the country in the field of protection of public health and way of achievement of these purposes, namely: strategy, programs and resources of upgrade of health care sector.

Strategy expresses will and interests of sovereign Tajikistan in the field of health protection. It is the complex and fundamental document of long-term planning which describes future program directions of the country leaders leading to comprehensive planning, implemented on evidential approaches. Strategy reflects opinions and prospects of the central governing bodies, local executive bodies of the government, and also opinion of suppliers of medical services and general population of Tajikistan.

Strategy covers the period from 2010 to 2020. It is the tool for support of succession and coordination and is integral part of national policy of social and economic development. This strategy is continuation of the document "The Strategy of the Republic of Tajikistan on Public Health Care during the Period till 2010", and considers the directions specified in other strategic documents such as: The national strategy of development for the Republic of Tajikistan for the period till 2015 and the Strategy of decrease in poverty. She also specifies strategic directions, especially in the field of separate services of health care sector.

Strategy is developed during cooperation of leading experts of the Republic of Tajikistan with the foreign experts representing the best international practices of system planning in the field of health care. Strategy promotes coordination of national and international programs, plans of support of development of health care sector in the Republic of Tajikistan. Without renouncing national priorities, it is oriented to global tasks of health care and the approaches to their decision approved in the world.

In the expired decade health care of the Republic of Tajikistan took upgrades of the resource and clinical base, and also systems of financing and the organization of the treatment-and-prophylactic help way. Revival of rates of economic growth, continued attention of the country leaders to priority tasks of social development, and also effective contribution of the international donor community to public health care of the country favorably affected development of industry.

Decrease in maternal and child mortality became result of efforts of the last decade. Incidence from infectious, in particular, vaktsinoupravlyaemy diseases was reduced. Modern clinical protocols and other standards of medical care are developed and take root. Certification of "the benevolent relation to the child" there underwent over a half of maternity hospitals.

In development of system of provision of medical services to the population the strategic turn of health care towards the integrated model of the primary health care based on family medicine began. Training of doctors and nurses of family medicine became priority in programs of dodiplomny, post-qualifying and life-long medical education of medical personnel. Important steps are taken for structural optimization of treatment-and-prophylactic network, in particular, due to carrying out restructuring of hospital service. Supervision of medical and pharmaceutical activities is strengthened.

Financing of health care took place the lower point in adverse dynamics of the last 20 years and returned on trajectory of strong growth. Step-by-step wages increase of workers of industry in the last three years reflects contribution of the state on recovery of their material welfare, and also the professional and public status. The wages rise was added with pilot modern methods of financing. There was understanding that for improvement of quality and efficiency of services of health care, it is necessary to carry out the analysis of the salary and other financial encouragement for health workers. Orientation of financing of health care to requirements of social justice amplified: The packet of the state guarantees, though took root in the conditions of acute shortage of resources, increased availability of free and preferential treatment-and-prophylactic services to many needy families and people needing more expensive medical care.

Ongoing work on updating legislative and regulatory framework of health care creates prerequisites for continuation of reforms. Despite progress of the last decade, in health care sector the problems inherited from the Soviet and transitional periods are revealed. Among such problems:

- outdate financially - the ZHGU technical base and shortage of investment funds for its timely updating;

- incompleteness of reforms in system of medical and sisterly education;

- ongoing brain drain from health care sector in connection with labor migration out of limits of Tajikistan;

- unsound methods and standards in the field of provision of medicines;

- the accruing lagging on implementation of the advanced international practice in techniques of diagnostics and treatment of widespread diseases;

- lack of modern system of standards and quality control of medical care.

The economy of health care remains not at the high level of financing., In 2009 the level of total expenses on health care sector constituted 1,9 of % of GDP that it is much less, than in 1991 (% 4,5). The developed level of financing is not able to remove burden, accumulated for the last two decades. By estimates, over 70% of total amount of financing are the share of payments from personal means of the population, only 16% for budgetary appropriations, and about 14% fees of donors (1). Payments of the population have generally informal character and, owing to this fact are hard controlled. Needy citizens of Tajikistan are not protected from excessive financial burdens in case of serious illness. Level of the paid nature is poorly connected with quality of the given help. Informal payments of patients raise the income of physicians, but do not exert impact on other Articles of the current financing and capital costs. Structural imbalance of the state costs for health care is shown in their uneven distribution between regions of the country and levels of assistance. Workers of health care have no due material and professional incentives to productive and high-quality work with emphasis on interests of patients.

Effectiveness of treatment-and-prophylactic work suffers from prevalence of help given by specialists of the specialized out-patient and hospital system over specialists of family medicine.

Insufficient quantity of some important types of the organizations promoting reduction of flow of patients for hospitalization and to reducing koyko-days, in particular:

- day hospitals;

- centers of out-patient surgery;

- houses of sisterly leaving;

- services of the patronage help and other services of social and medical and rehabilitation support.

Sanitarno - epidemiological wellbeing of the population of the country almost entirely depends on activities of services and healthcare institutions. At the same time there is no cross-industry cooperation, vital for decrease in environmental and social risks of incidence.

Community, including separate families, are not considered and are not used as independent resource for prevention, early recognition and treatment of diseases.

Rehabilitation and adaptation of patients-hronikov and disabled people, being the most important factor of decrease in burden of disease, nevertheless, did not become integral part of system of prevention and treatment yet.

The suspense of the problems given above, in combination with the remaining level of development of the country where social and economic disorder of considerable part of the population is noted is obstacle for dynamic development. It leads to the low level of number of important indicators of health, including average life expectancy, maternal, infantile and child mortality, incidence of tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS.

Proceeding from it, the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan concentrated attention to rendering efficient and effective social services to the poor population, rationalization of expenses on the social sector for ensuring fair access to health care services. In this direction the United Nations Declaration "The Development Purposes on the Dawn of the Millennium by 2015" was adopted. In particular, the purposes on health care include:

- reducing on 2/3 death rates among children under 5 years;

- reducing on 3/4 maternal death rates;

- distribution stop HIV/AIDS and to lay the foundation for tendency to reducing its scales;

- stop of spread of malaria and other main diseases and to lay the foundation for tendency to reducing its scales.

The ideas containing in the above-named political documents represent basis of development programs of health care sector within the Strategy of reducing poverty and the Concept of reform of health care of the Republic of Tajikistan.

The reform model concerning provision of medical services includes improvement of availability by restructuring and integration of system of provision of the medical and sanitary help, improvement of management of both levels of provision of medical and sanitary services by organizations (PHC, hospital service and public health care), high-quality development of the primary health care based on model of family practice; rationalization of bed fund and structure of hospital organizations, strengthening of personnel capacity of PHC organizations, hospital services and public health care, improvement of infrastructure, enhancement of provision of medicines, change of payment system of suppliers of medical services differentially at the level of PHC by the per capita principle and at the hospital level - for the treated case; implementation of scientific achievements and new methods of prevention, diagnostics and treatment using high technologies; participation of the population in the solution of questions of health care; rehabilitations of patients and disabled people, organizations of palliative care, enhancement of information base of management and some other actions.

The national strategy of health of the next decade will fully rely on achievements of preceding period, and is aimed at effective solution of the imminent problems.

Main goal of Strategy is strengthening of health of the population of the country and creation of the healthy environment.

For successful achievement of effective objective within Strategy the following priorities are allocated:

- system transformations in health care: strengthening and upgrade of management system industry for creation of the productive, social and acceptable, steadily working and transparent system of public health care of Tajikistan;

- improvement of availability, quality and efficiency of medical and sanitary services;

- development of resources of health care.

Successful strategy implementation will entirely depend on integrated approach to resources, systems and results of management in health care. The logic of management is that resources provide functioning of systems, and systems work for results. In the context of strategic planning and system and resources are subordinated to results. For this reason anticipation of results is regarded as of paramount importance strategic thinking and is the basis for this document. According to this logical scheme, the end state of health care of Tajikistan and way of its achievement reveal in three levels:

1. Results: decrease in level of risks and indicators of incidence on separate conditions, life cycles, national groups;

2. Systems:

a) enhancement of management and operational management of health care industry;

b) implementation of progressive models of the organization and techniques of delivery of health care;

c) enhancement of quality control and stimulation of improvement of quality of treatment-and-prophylactic work;

d) licensing and certification of health workers;

e) accreditation lechebno - preventive, medical (pharmaceutical) educational institutions;

e) ensuring equal availability of all residents of the country to health care sector resources.

3. Resources:

a) updating is material - technical base of treatment-and-prophylactic organizations and systems;

b) supply of the country with modern vaccines, medicines and medical goods;

c) increase in effectiveness of work of medical personnel by implementation of modern programs of preparation in the field of basic and life-long medical education and implementation of scientifically based approaches;

d) steady inflow of financial resources for health protection and their effective expenditure.

All three levels and their components are equally important and are the Strategy priority. In this sense, statement of priorities is not so much quantitative, and high-quality approach to implementation. These approaches in step-by-step form will be reflected in the actions plan.

Comprehensive priority of the next decade is ensuring system, integrated approach in increase in effectiveness of health care system. It will be reached by the approved upgrade of management systems of health care based on more rational organization, effective use and the strengthened resource providing. Within such approach, productive, system and complete and well-resourced health care will become result of successful strategy implementation.
