Kazakhstan has experienced tremendous growth and rapid economic development, with a GDP growth rate of around 10% since 2000, the country is among the fastest-growing economies of the world and outpaces all other Central Asian States by far.
• Kazakhstan’s medical system is experiencing rapid development. This can be seen in significant investments in health infrastructure and hospitals, especially in Astana.
• There are many challenges to overcome as well as the opportunities that now exist in Kazakhstan to improve the healthcare system.
Despite a recent increase in public health expenditures, up to 2.7 percent
GDP, Kazakhstan’s healthcare is characterized by insufficient access to the latest technology and advances in clinical care.
Kazakhstan is considering the adoption of western models of healthcare management, education, clinical practice and medical research.
