CDC Expands Cooperation With Turkmenistan

A delegation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) led by Dr. Alexander Millman, Director of the Global Health Protection Program for Central Asia, on Thursday held meetings with representatives from Turkmenistan’s Ministry of Health and Medical Industry, the Center for Public Health and Nutrition, and the State Medical University.

According to the U.S. Embassy in Turkmenistan, the CDC delegation expressed the U.S. government's interest in supporting the country's capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats, including support for training qualified public health professionals.

During the meetings, discussions revolved around cooperation in strengthening the human resource capacity of public health within the framework of the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP), promoting public health and medical science, and enhancing capabilities in detecting particularly dangerous infectious diseases.

The first Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) office in Central Asia was established in 1995 in the Republic of Kazakhstan. Currently, the CDC has country offices in the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, the Republic of Tajikistan, and the Republic of Uzbekistan.
