The President of the Republic of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon opens the new Family and Child Support Centre in Istaravshan, built by the local community for the family and child support services set up by HealthProm, with local partners, Hayot dar Oil, Sarchashma, and UNICEF.
HealthProm has worked in Tajikistan since 2006. Our continuing work plan is to support families to retain care of their children so they do not place them in a Baby Home.
By 2016, we established Family Support Centres next to all four Baby Homes in the country. Our current project takes this one step further by supporting the Government of Tajikistan to transform the Baby Homes into community-oriented Family and Child Support Centres.
Our strengthened family support services include better protection for children vulnerable to abuse and neglect, and more opportunities for alternative family care.
