Sport for everyone

1 October 2021

The concern for the younger generation to grow up to be physically and mentally strong is a priority of the state policy. In this context, great work is underway to develop the mass sports movement in our country. Construction of the healthcare institutions and sports facilities is intensified in Turkmenistan.

The tasks aimed at promoting the principles of a healthy lifestyle, at supporting sport and at educating young people to become eminent persons are reflected in the national legislation. The Law of Turkmenistan on Physical Culture and Sports was adopted to strengthen the health of people, to increase the life expectancy in our country, to integrate a healthy lifestyle into the daily life of our society, and to prevent infectious and non-infectious diseases. The Law focuses on educating people to follow the principles of a healthy lifestyle, on avoiding bad habits, and on building an active life in the Turkmen society, starting from childhood.
