In 1994 the Ministry of Public Health of the Kyrgyz Republic and the WTO European regional bureau signed a Memorandum of Understanding according to which the Ministry of Public Health started designing of a General Plan of the Public Health System Reform, which was further called the National Public Health System Reform Program of the Kyrgyz Republic “Manas”. The program was approved by the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic in 1996. Creation of the system of initial medical and sanitary assistance with the focus on family medicine was one of the major program goals. At that legal and financial separation of the initial medical and sanitary assistance from hospital services1 was the most important element of the public health sector
Polyclinics, which earlier were a part of Central rayon hospitals (CRH), were transformed into groups of family doctors (FGP) as independent legal entities or into Family Medicine Centers (FMC) and their branches in the form of the nearest FGP. Besides, in rural areas feldsher and obstetrics posts (FAP) were preserved, whereas rural neighborhood hospitals (RNH) and rural ambulatory stations (RAS) were transferred into FGP as independent legal entities or into FGP as branches of FMC.
