The next year, he ordered hospitals and clinics outside of the capital, Ashgabat, to close -- even though the vast proportion of Turkmenistan's population lives in rural areas.

He also implemented fees and created an "unofficial" ban on the diagnosis of certain communicable diseases, like hepatitis.
