TojikInfo Database is managed by the Statistical Agency under the President of the Republic of Tajikistan within the framework of its mandate to collect, process and analyze statistical information in the country. In June 2013 the Statistical Agency established a Working Group on TojikInfo for enhancing sustainable implementation of the system. With the UNICEF technical support and in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade a list of indicators for monitoring the situation of children and women at the national and regional levels was developed. In September 2013 a preliminary list of indicators was presented and discussed with the key partners. All the parties concerned should have made further efforts to finalize and complete the list of indicators for the TojikInfo new database.
There is a need to further strengthen the national capacity to manage TojikInfo as a tool to support decision making based on the evidence that improve the situation of children.
