MSF's publications are an expression of our belief in the principle of témoignage, or bearing witness, and the belief that we are accountable to those we work for and with. Sharing news about our activities and reflecting on them, offering critiques when necessary, are therefore crucial aspects of our work.

New York/Berlin/Moscow, April 12, 2010 -- Turkmenistan’s outward show of health and prosperity to the international community is masking a dangerous public health situation, in which government officials actively deny the prevalence of infectious disease, medical data is systemically manipulated, and international standards and protocols are rarely applied in practice, according to a report released today by the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), which details its 10-year-experience providing medical care in the country.

Berlin/Ashgabat, December 17, 2009 - The international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) has closed its medical activities in Turkmenistan after ten years of working in the Central Asian country.

The people of Turkmenistan are being failed by their health care system, by their government, and by the international community. The system that is supposed to ensure their health is instead designed to conceal problems. This is not a case of individual practitioners failing to do their jobs but one that is far more systematic.
