IFC Develops Manual to Help Tajikistan’s Health Inspectors Implement New Rules
IFC has presented a manual on inspections to the Republican Centre of State Sanitary and Epidemiologic Supervision of the Health Ministry of Tajikistan, the first agency to adopt the country’s new inspection rules. The manual, designed to help local inspectors improve their operations, includes the new rules and required forms, as well as the text of the inspections law, which IFC helped develop.
IFC and the Swiss government are providing advisory support to help Tajikistan develop regulatory documents as part of a broader commitment to implementing the new law. To promote this effort, IFC recently launched a series of public service announcements on Tajik national television.
“We are thankful for IFC’s support in developing the manual. It is an essential resource for our inspectors and will be distributed at our training sessions,” said Samariddin Aliev, Head of the Republican Centre of State Sanitary and Epidemiologic Supervision.
“The government’s recent adoption of the inspections rules demonstrates its commitment to help develop entrepreneurship, particularly for smaller businesses. The manual will support the inspectors’ efforts to implement the new rules. Without this cooperation, the rules would not have the desired impact,” said Andrea Dall’Olio, IFC Project Manager in Tajikistan
This effort follows a February 2007 action plan signed by IFC and the Republican Centre of State Sanitary and Epidemiologic Supervision to implement the inspections law. To advance this initiative throughout Tajikistan, IFC is also working on a pilot basis with the Ministry of Interior’s Central Department of Fire Service and the national Tax Committee.
