Community Action for Health in Kyrgyzstan

The local community discusses health priorities within their village.

01.04.2014 - 31.12.2017

The project takes the local people as its starting point: neighbourhood communities are actively involved both in the planning and in the implementation of health-related activities, such as checking blood pressure or discussing healthy lifestyles. In close cooperation with the Ministry of Health, the programme not only improves health in a sustainable way, but it also allows the local community to be actively engaged as a civil society. As the first steps showed very positive results, the project has been scaled up to a national level.

Legal assistance for Kyrgyz farmers: More law – less poverty

01.01.2011 - 31.12.2014

Thanks to land reform, many Kyrgyz farmers have their own, albeit small, piece of land. To be able to subsist from agriculture, farmers lease and buy additional land. This leads to legal disputes regarding access to water and mountain pastureland. The local non-governmental organisation "Legal Assistance for Rural Citizens" (LARC) helps farmers and other rural groups to claim and protect their rights.

Phase II of the project will finalize the medical education reform implementation process with focus on postgraduate and continuous medical education.
