Mid-term review of paediatric care project in Kyrgyzstan

On 8 October 2013,  WHO and the Ministry of Health conducted  a joint meeting to present findings of a mid-term review in Kyrgyzstan of a WHO project  on improving the quality of paediatric care in first-level referral hospitals in selected countries of central Asia and Africa  (2012–2014). This project is funded by the Russian Federation.

In each hospital, the review team had assessed progress according to an approved hospital action plan and supervisory tool. The team visited and observed care in the relevant departments, talked to mothers, hospital administration and staff, identified problems and provided practical recommendations. 

Key stakeholders involved in implementation of the project, including hospital managers from all project hospitals, were updated on the findings at the review meeting. The participants reviewed progress to date, identified critical challenges and proposed feasible solutions to overcome the constraints.
