With the support of WHO, the Ministry of Health and Social Protection (MoHSP) is developing different TV and radio programmes dedicated to World Food Safety Day 2020. The programmes will be broadcasted through the national television channels Tojikiston, Safina, Jahonnamo, Bahoriston, and Farhang, Tandurusti as well as Vatan radio channels. The programmes will be repeatedly broadcasted within a week. This will include short videos to promote the WHO Five Keys to Safer Food in Tajik.

The MoHSP also plans to print and distribute WHO/FAO information materials for World Food Safety Day including the Tajik version of the poster “Food safety is everyone’s business” through primary health care centers (PHC) in the Capital city, Dushanbe. Other information materials and videos in Tajik will be distributed through social networks of MoHSP, Khovar, Asia-plus, etc.
