State language is Tajik.

After receipt of independence the country met not only economic difficulties, but also transferred the political and ethnic disagreements which led in the middle of 1992 to civil war. The country had no opportunities to concentrate attention on economic reforms until signing of the General Agreement about peace-making and national consent in Tajikistan on June 27, 1997.

GDP in 2000 constituted 159, 6 US dollars per capita (the Comment 1), (GDP in 1999 - 149,4). Referring to the statement of the World Bank (1998), about 80% of the population can be carried to poor layers in this connection restructuring of economy and adaptation to market conditions has huge value.

Economic, political and social degradation influenced deterioration in indicators of health of the population. Today, the majority of indicators of health of the nation characterize Tajikistan as the state having lower status of health in comparison with other states with the average level of the income. Growth of infectious diseases causes alarm.

Social and economic instability negatively affected health care system condition enough. At the same time the ineffective system of delivery of health care was aggravated by gap of commercial ties, output gap, financial and other difficulties. The corresponding downgrade of health of the population promoted awareness of urgent need in carrying out reforms in health care sector for the purpose of stabilization and improvement of the situation.
