Progress report on the implementation of Kyrgyzstan’s programme and action plan on prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases, 2013–2020 (2017)




Kyrgyzstan adopted a NCD programme and an action plan on noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) for 2013–2020 in 2013. The country requested support from the WHO Regional Office for Europe in conducting a mid-term review on its implementation to monitor progress towards the targets and to identify challenges and opportunities for improvement and innovation in the second part of the term. A comprehensive framework guided the review of the programme and action plan on NCDs based on the logical result-chain matrix.

Key recommendations have been identified and discussed with the Ministry of Health in the following areas:

  • accelerating efforts to control the NCD risk factors;
  • increasing capacity in monitoring and evaluation;
  • improving allocative efficiency; and
  • strengthening coordination and accountability to ensure increased capacity.
