On 10th of May 2022, UNFPA CO in Tajikistan in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Social Protection of Population (MoHSP) have organized a National ToT on the rights-based Voluntary Surgical Sterilization (VSS) in women by a simpler, less invasive and more cost-effective out-patient surgery called mini laparoscopic tubal ligation.
Female sterilization is intended to provide life-long, permanent, and very effective protection against pregnancy with no long-term side effects. Sterilization is recommended for women with cardiovascular diseases, neurologic conditions, reproductive tract infections and disorders, endocrine conditions and gastrointestinal conditions.
20 OBGYNs from the selected districts of Sogd, Khatlon and DRDs will be certified to provide VSS and receive mini-laparoscopy kits to perform this method immediately after the ToT.
