Keeping up with its policy of developing infrastructure in friendly countries without any quid pro quo or collateral benefit, India on June 11, 2022 handed over the India-Tajikistan Friendship Hospital ( ITFH) at Bokhtar, near Dushanbe to the Tajik government.

As per the official statement, Ambassador of India to Tajikistan Viraj Singh handed over the hospital on behalf of the Indian Government. "The entire complement of medical equipment, medicines, stores, and support equipment, including an Operation Theatre, X-Ray machines, laboratories, critical care ambulances, and administrative vehicles were also handed over to the Tajik side," the Indian Embassy in Dushanbe stated.

The hospital was refurbished by the Indian Government and inaugurated in October 2014 based on an MoU signed between both sides in January 2013. "This fully-fledged 50-bedded hospital has rendered free-of-cost valuable medical services for the last 8 years to the Armed Forces and civilian populace of Tajikistan based on technical support and financial assistance from the Government of India," the Embassy informed.
What medical facilities are provided at ITFH?
A vast range of medical facilities including Medicine, Pediatrics, ENT, Surgery, Gynecology and Dental treatments are provided at the ITFH.
A team of Indian Army doctors and medical staff over years, 100,000 patients have got support from this hospital and almost 2000 surgeries over the last couple of years. The Indian Army doctors have also played an important role in training the local Tajik doctors and medical staff. India has sent around 42 tons of `Made in India’ medicines to ITFH.
Besides the hospital, New Delhi has also provided medical assistance to Tajikistan in other forms. India provided 2 million doses of oral polio vaccine through UNICEF in 2010 after the outbreak of Polio in southwest Tajikistan.
"In March 2018, India gifted 10 ambulances to various regions of Tajikistan. In May 2020, India provided 50,000 HCQ tablets and 100,000 paracetamol tablets to Tajikistan. In 2021, approx 700,000 ‘Made in India’ Covishield vaccines were supplied to Tajikistan," the official statement read.
The Embassy expressed confidence and hope that the Tajik side will continue to run the hospital effectively and efficiently with the capacities created by India.
"The ITFH will continue to be a symbol of the close and friendly relations between India and Tajikistan," it stated.
