Astana, August 28, 2015
Projects on construction of new health facilities through PPP have been presented in Astana.
The projects have been presented during the round table event named “Introduction of Public-Private Partnership into the healthcare system of Kazakhstan”, organized by the MoHSD of RoK and The Center of PPP Projects Implementation JSC “Baiterek” with the support of the Akimat of Kyzylorda oblast and the Kazakh National Medical University after Asfendiyarov. Representatives of 15 foreign investment companies took part in the round table.
One of the potential projects is the construction of a multiprofile hospital for 300 beds as part of the Kazakh National Medical University after Asfendiyarov in Almaty. This project is unique for Kazakhstan as currently there is no university which has its own health facility that would allow not only to teach students but also to provide tertiary medical care to the population.
The Republican Center for Health Development has rated the regions of Kazakhstan as per the level of health care development based on the results for 2014. The RCHD experts assessed the performance of health departments in all the 14 regions of the country as well as Astana and Almaty cities.

The last – 16th place in the ranking occupies the Western Kazakhstan region.
