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.

Introduction and overview

Kazakhstan has seen remarkable economic progress since the early 2000s, driven largely by exploiting its large reserve of natural resources. Its current GDP per capita is now on par with many of the Central European members of the OECD. At the same time Kazakhstan has embarked on a series of health care reforms on health care financing and delivery. However, Kazakhstan still faces a number of challenges with many of its health outcomes lagging behind those of the OECD countries.
