A service framework and roadmap for the development of care systems for heart attack and stroke in Kyrgyzstan (2018)




Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) cause 50% of all deaths in Kyrgyzstan, and premature mortality from CVD is still high. Clinical care of CVD is costly and prolonged.

The roadmap aims to create and transform existing networks, implement better clinical guidelines, use resources more effectively, improve infrastructure and improve performance management. Further, mapping the organization of regional centres for specialized care in acute myocardial infraction and stroke will improve the time indicators of specialized treatment. The roadmap outlines core acute care interventions in acute myocardial infraction and stroke with key design of services and proposes strategic directions to accelerate gains in CVD management.
