All the beauty and life in the whole world depends on health, as the Turkmen philosopher and poet Magtymguly Pyragy put it, ‘This world begins with health’. That is why the health of our compatriots is a priority of the state policy put forward by the President of Turkmenistan.
Great efforts have been made to promote the principles of a healthy lifestyle in our society in the years of independence. The Saglyk State Programme was developed with the active participation and guidance of the Turkmen leader, who had supervised the national healthcare system for many years. Extensive work has been conducted and is underway to implement the tasks mentioned in the Programme.
