From 2008 to 2011, the project’s first stage worked to improve the quality of Uzbekistan’s health system and the abilities of its health care professionals within eight target regions, namely Andijan, Namangan, Sirdarya, Djizzakh, Samarkand, Navoi, Kashkadarya and Surkhandarya. The project’s second stage, currently being implemented, will expand its coverage to Uzbekistan’s remaining six regions and therefore ensure that quality maternal and child health services are available nationwide.
In addition to expanding initiatives designed to enhance the capacity development of Uzbekistan’s health system, the new phase of the project will ensure that parents can utilise best childcare and nutritional practices in their own homes.
