The project will be implemented from 2019 to 2015.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

At independence, in 1991, the health system in Kazakhstan faced significant challenges and emphasized inpatient hospital care. Hospital infrastructure was over supplied and not well maintained. Of the 877 inpatient and 7,276 outpatient facilities in the country, around 17% were built before 1965, and a further 47% were built between then and 1985. There is considerable rehabilitation and construction required to repair and/or modernize the facilities.

The current Healthcare Development Program for 2016 2019 focuses on (i) developing a modern and integrated health system with primary health care at the core of the system and (ii) enhancing the quality and financial sustainability of health service delivery. Like the country's previous health strategy, it actively explores private sector participation including public-private partnerships (PPP), and increasing the use of innovation and modern technologies to more effectively develop and deliver health services.

The Access to Information Policy (AIP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
