Twinning Arrangement for Investment Planning in the Health Sector. Master Plan for Hospital Network Optimization: Kazakhstan.
The objective of this project was to develop strategies for the strengthening of the hospital networks, in each Oblast based on the best international practices. This was achieved by the application of planning standards for facilities, beds, staff, technology, application of a proposed catchment population for each different level of hospital facility in the network and mapping of access times by level of facility to identify any overlap in the existing network and therefore improve access to specialized services.
This project provides a long‐term strategy in each Oblast for the transition from the current network, which is characterized by over-capacity and a lack of hospitals built to international standards, to a modern network that focuses on achieving the best health outcomes in the most cost-effective manner.
