It has been 20 years since USAID first came to Central Asia to help the newly independent countries strengthen their health systems. At the time, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan faced a daunting task: coping with the realities of a
post-Soviet world in which Moscow’s financial and administrative support abruptly ended.
The positive changes int the system have resulted in improved health indicators across the region. For example, maternal and infant mortality rates, often considered a barometer of a nation’s health, have decreased dramatically.
