2015 is a very special year in the history of the health exhibition in Ashgabat as Turkmenistan celebrates the 20th anniversary of Saglyk, the national program for the development of the healthcare infrastructure. Ever since substantial progress has been made, in particular in Ashgabat where a so-called Medical City has been established. A considerable number of specialized clinics as well as other medical facilities with state-of-the-art equipment have been erected and put into operation in a defined location on the outskirts of Ashgabat. Many of them have been equipped by hospitalia international.
It is thus honour and obligation for hospitalia international to participate in the health exhibition with its own booth, just as in the many previous years. In total more than 250 companies of the pharmaceutical and medical equipment sector have presented their goods at the exhibition, most of them originating from EU. Also, several facilities closely linked to the healthcare sector such as Turkmenistan’s state-run institutions, research and training centers, sanatoria, etc. presented their services.
