Investing In People
USAID was the first and primary donor to assist Kazakhstan with the challenge of making the health system financially viable and able to provide quality health care to the population. USAID helped introduce the country’s first family medicine centers and supported retraining of doctors to provide evidence-based and patient-oriented services. USAID provided more than 1.5 million people with improved child care information and helped introduce a number of international practices that are improving maternal, child, and reproductive health services.
USAID helps Kazakhstan control infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS and TB, including multi-drug-resistant TB. These efforts have helped reduce TB rates from 167 per 100,000 population in 2000 to 105 per 100,000 population in 2009, saving more than 30,000 lives. USAID works closely with other partners, including the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, to improve coordination and implementation of HIV and TB prevention, care, and treatment activities in Kazakhstan.
