COVID-19 Grant Support (Mobile Diagnostics)


The aim of the Project is to increase the level of provision of the necessary medical technical means of the Republic of Tajikistan to combat COVID-19 and respond to its consequences. The project assumes:

  • creating conditions for prompt and timely detection of COVID-19;
  • increasing the availability of diagnostic services for the population of COVID-19;
  •  expanding the coverage of COVID-19 testing;
  •  assistance in the organization of epidemiological surveillance of cases of infection;
  •  Reduction of morbidity and mortality due to COVID-19.
The project provides for the allocation of 3 million US dollars for the purchase of five mobile sanitary and epidemiological laboratories (MSEL), as well as about 100,000 tests for free COVID-19 tests among the population of Tajikistan. MSEL will be equipped with a set of life support systems that provide electricity, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, water supply, as well as appropriate equipment. Mobile laboratories can be used as a separate laboratory, independent of medical institutions, in places of mass and limited congestion of people, at airports and train stations upon arrival of a large number of passengers. At the same time, this technique can be deployed on the territory of medical institutions as a basic or additional laboratory with the receipt of biomaterial from a medical institution.
