Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is a landlocked, mountainous country in Central Asia. Its population of 6 million people has a life expectancy at birth of 67 years (male) and 75 years (female). Kyrgyzstan began to restructure its soviet-era health system in the 1990s by introducing a mandatory health insurance fund and guaranteed benefits package; since 2001, the country has implemented three health reform programs in 2001-05, 2006-11 and 2012-16 to improve health systems governance and introduce new models of service delivery. The UHC Partnership, which it joined in 2016, supports the country in elaborating the fourth generation of its health sector strategy to address new challenges emerging from the increased prevalence of non-communicable diseases, as well as to accelerate progress towards UHC goals.
