Mission to Kyrgyzstan

RHC experts joined the UN mission to Kyrgyzstan to support the Government in developing national investment case on the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases and investment case on mental health.

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and chronic respiratory disease and their risk factors (tobacco use, harmful use of alcohol, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity) are an increasing public health and development challenge in Kyrgyzstan, causing 80% of all deaths in the country.

RHC together with officials from the World Health Organization and the United Nations Development Programme met President’s Administration, minister of labor, welfare and migration, deputy minister of health, deputy minister of finance.

As part of its work on the digital health business case, RHC team conducted a round table with E-Health Centre to discuss the ways to scale up digital health solutions in primary care to prevent and control NCDs.

Our economists and development specialists also met with the minister of education, ministry of economy, tax and customs offices and heads of healthcare centers.

Investment case reports will provide evidence on:

  1. direct and indirect economic burden of both NCDs and mental health for national health system, social sector and economy as a whole;

  2. an estimate of the funding required to implement a set of NCDs and mental health interventions;

  3. A return on investment analysis compared the estimated implementation costs during the costing analysis with the estimated health gains and economic returns of a set of interventions.
