Den Sooluk National Health Reform Program of the Kyrgyz Republic has been developed for 2012-2016 and is a logical continuation of the preceding National Health Reform Programs– Manas (1996-2005) and Manas Taalimi (2006-2011).
Den Sooluk Program was developed through a participatory and collaborative effort under the leadership of the MOH and supported by WHO and other Development Partners active in the SWAp. The Program was discussed with policy-makers, health professionals, civil society representatives and development partners whose contributions have shaped the final version of the National Den Sooluk Health Reform Program of the Kyrgyz Republic for 2012-2016.
The mission of Den Sooluk Program is to establish conditions for health protection and improvement of the population as a whole and each individual irrespective to social status and gender differences. Based on the disease burden structure and commitments of the Kyrgyz Government to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (the MDGs) four priority areas to improve health indicators have been selected for the Den Sooluk: cardiovascular diseases, maternal and child health, tuberculosis and HIV infection.
Den Sooluk Program is based on strengths and gains of prior National Health Reform Programs and has own distinctive features:
- The Den Sooluk Program structure considers the established priorities with clear identification of the expected outcomes in each area;
- All program activities are determined by the agreed expected outcomes in improvement of health outcomes.
- Improvement of key health services both at individual and population levels is the basis for this Program.
- Health system strengthening will be strongly oriented at removal of the barriers hindering delivery of key health services in four selected priority areas.
