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.

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.

Planned project

Strengthening Governance in the Primary Health Care System in Kyrgyzstan

01.01.2018 - 31.12.2027

The health system in Kyrgyzstan is not sufficiently prepared to cope with the rising burden of disease, which undermines the social and economic development of the country. In particular, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) (cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and acute respiratory diseases) account for 80% of all deaths in the country, largely affecting people in their productive years. The project aims at improving the health and wellbeing of the rural population, by strengthening governance of primary health care services, with a focus on prevention and control of NCDs, and by promoting healthy behaviours among the population.


Medical Education Reforms in Kyrgyzstan

01.05.2017 - 30.04.2021

Although health sector reforms have prioritised family medicine, the medical education system continues to prepare narrow specialists, leading to a shortage of family doctors mainly in rural areas. The Ministry of Health initiated the medical education reforms with focus on family doctors specialty at pregraduate level and compulsory postgraduate clinical practice in the regions. Phase II of the project will finalize the medical education reform implementation process with focus on postgraduate and continuous medical education.


Health Care Waste Management in Kyrgyz Hospitals

01.04.2017 - 31.05.2019

Hospital acquired infections are a serious burden affecting the quality and safety of medical care in Kyrgyzstan. In spite of the Ministry of Health showing a strong support to infection prevention control, the hospital acquired infections‘ prevalence is still high due to bw capacities and limited resources. The project aims at improving the quality of care based on pibots‘ experience (since 2008) through institutionalisation, standardization and full integration of all infection control interventions into the medical system.
