It is good that UNFPA Turkmenistan is working to challenge societal norms and to foster a culture of equality, mutual respect, and shared responsibility. These are constructive efforts that can contribute to the development of a more inclusive society in Turkmenistan.

At Saglyk, we have been developing content on family planning, sexual and reproductive health for the past 13 years. We would like to offer suggestions to UNFPA to help shape future public informational campaigns.

Digital Violence

What does the public in Turkmenistan think about the status of women and girls?

March 8, 2023

Women and girls in Turkmenistan are not safe online and their chances of encountering hateful content have been increasing over the last two years. The Saglyk program of Progres Foundation unveiled today the findings from the first-ever social media listening project. Social media has been used as a source of data for the research because it provides the public with a forum to express their opinions, an almost non-existent feature in offline Turkmenistan.

The unmet need for family planning is defined as the percentage of women of reproductive age, who are sexually active and not using any method of contraception (for a certain reason: economic, health, family, religion, lack of knowledge), but who want to stop or delay childbearing.

cancer letterOriginal letter is in English. The letter has been translated into the Turkmen language.

About 12 years ago my mother was diagnosed with cancer in Turkmenistan, she had started losing her voice earlier but the entire time we thought it was because she caught cold. I was a high school student back then, and all I knew about cancer was that most people die from it. I did not know about symptoms, preventive measures, treatment and neither did my parents. They were the working-class folk, with no education beyond high school, and home remedies and traditional medicine were relied upon in our community for the most part anyway. Mama started losing a lot of weight and breathing well became a challenge, this is when one of the family’s friends recommended testing for something more serious than cold in Ashgabat. Fortunately, we were on time, and the Ashgabat doctor in the Oncological Center, saved my mother’s life. Her tumor was a "positive" type, the one that could be cured. She underwent three surgeries and she is enjoying her life to this day, though cancer left her with a disability – she still cannot speak in full voice.
