Social infrastructure in Kyrgyzstan is in poor condition due to limited financial capacities and poor management. One of the major problems that rural areas are facing is limited or no access to medical services. ACTED has launched a project aimed at improving health outcomes for vulnerable rural communities of Kadamjai and Leilek in the Batken region through supporting better access to medical services and changing hygiene practices. This project, supported by the European Union, targets four rural villages which have limited or no access to proper medical services in their communities. In collaboration with local partner ‘Central Asian Alliance for Water’, ACTED will contribute to improve access to medical treatments and better services for over 8,000 people and ensure targeted communities are better able to manage medical infrastructures and that their level of awareness towards good hygiene practices is raised.
