Kazakhstan: Health
Country Study > Chapter 7 > Health

HEALTH


The early years of independence have had a disastrous effect on public health. In the 1980s, Kazakhstan had an extensively developed public health system that delivered at least basic care without charge even to very remote communities. By 1993, however, Kazakhstan rated below average or lower among the former Soviet republics in medical system, sanitation, medical industry, medical research and development, and pharmaceutical supply.
