Response to COVID 19 in Tajikistan [VIDEO]

The response to COVID-19 in Tajikistan is WHO/Europe’s largest emergency operation in the European Region to date. At the Government’s invitation, a WHO mission arrived on the ground in May.

PCPM’s mission in Tajikistan

For three weeks, a team of over twenty specialists from the PCPM Emergency Medical Team participated in the mission in Tajikistan. Medical specialists were working on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic nationwide, regardless of the circumstances. They supported hospitals in the capital of the country, in the Fergana Valley and in the Pamir Mountains. PCPM EMT was the only international medical team that reached the hospital in Khorugh, where there is a shortage of medicines, and places with access to oxygen are very limited.
