Healthcare
Turkmenistan’s healthcare services have deteriorated over the past few years, as reflected by its poor health indicators. The quality of primary health services in rural areas is low due to a lack of trained midwives and doctors and limited healthcare infrastructure. As per CIA – The World Factbook estimates for 2012, the infant mortality rate in Turkmenistan stood at 40.89 per 1,000 live births. Meanwhile, the maternal mortality rate stood at 67 deaths per 100,000 live births in 2010. As per 2012 estimates, the life expectancy for the entire population was 68.8 years. The country’s total expenditure on health was reported as 2.3% of GDP in 2009 by CIA – The World Factbook.
Income distribution
According to the UNDP’s 2011 Human Development Report, the country was ranked 102nd out of 187 countries. Widening disparity between the rural and urban areas in terms of health, education, and living standards is a serious concern in the country.
Education
Turkmenistan has a high literacy rate, a legacy of the Soviet era state-funded education system. According to CIA – The World Factbook, 98.8% of the population was literate, as of 1999. In spite of a highly literate population, there is a gross mismatch between worker’s skills and job requirements that has its roots in poor education quality, scarcity of trained teachers, and inadequate participation of employers in education management.
