Taking stock of primary health care improvements in Uzbekistan

24 September 2014

Uzbekistan initiated primary health care (PHC) reforms in the late 1990s with the aim of ensuring better health and universal access to health care. The results of the reforms were recently assessed using the WHO Primary Care Evaluation Tool (PCET) and are presented in a new report supported by WHO/Europe. 

The review summarizes PCET's assessment of 4 health system functions: stewardship, resource generation, financing and service delivery. It presents Uzbekistan's progress through key achievements, issues and major factors contributing to and impeding further improvement of the health system. 

The results and recommendations of the assessment are intended to guide effective planning of further primary health care development. The report issued by the Ministry of Health of Republic of Uzbekistan is available in Russian and will soon also be available in English.
