This report assesses how Kazakhstan measures up in the development and application of its national health accounts, delivering a set of recommendations to improve the country’s health care financing information. As Kazakhstan has made significant economic progress over recent decades, health has risen on the policy agenda with a number of sector reforms introduced to modernise the system and improve the health of the population. Informing this agenda and monitoring progress towards health system goals requires accurate, timely and comprehensive information on health care financing and spending. A clear understanding of the resource allocations and drivers in the health sector is a prerequisite to support health system performance in Kazakhstan.

Executive Summary

Experience from many OECD and non-OECD countries has shown that the sustained production and use of a standard and robust health accounting framework, such as the System of Health Accounts 2011, can provide timely and accurate information on health care expenditure and financing for health policy and international benchmarking. To achieve this requires strong governance, sufficient capacity in terms of expertise, and sustainable financing.
