Priorities for joint work are set out in the biennial collaborative agreement (BCA) between WHO/Europe and Kyrgyzstan.
In Kyrgyzstan, we have supported the Government for over 25 years - since the country became a WHO Member State in 1992. Our goal is to build a better, healthier future for the people of Kyrgyzstan.
WHO has been providing assistance to Kyrgyzstan in all emergency situations for more than 20 years. Currently, its focus is on helping the country scale up implementation of the International Health Regulations (IHR) (2005), build capacity for dealing with disasters and improve preparedness for infectious disease outbreaks.
In 2015, Kyrgyzstan began to implement the WHO Better Labs for Better Health initiative. Under this initiative, WHO leads and coordinates the efforts of national health authorities, donors and development partners to build national laboratory capacity on different levels.
Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart and lung diseases, cancer, and diabetes account for 80% of all deaths in Kyrgyzstan. Surveys conducted in Kyrgyzstan with the support of WHO have shown a high prevalence of risk factors among the population.
In 2017, Kyrgyzstan introduced 3 new laws on medicines and medical devices. This was an important step towards establishing equitable access to quality essential medicines. National health authorities worked on developing these laws for several years, and WHO actively contributed to the process and promoted the adoption.
Street food is a widely accessible and inexpensive source of food in central Asia. However, it can contain high levels of salt and trans fats, which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
