Healthcare in Uzbekistan

 Despite the development and implementation of privatizing many healthcare organizations in Uzbekistan, the healthcare system remains largely government funded. This means that funded for government owned healthcare institutions are provided by the following sources:

  • Ministry of Public Health of Uzbekistan

  • Local and Regional Governments

  • Specialized facilities serving ministries and public sector organizations

Working conditions and salaries are of a higher standard in local and regional governments and in specialized facilities serving ministries compared to that of Ministry of Public Health, which means that treatments in these two categories are also of a higher standard.

There has however, been a shift from public to private healthcare over the years, with many pharmacies, dental surgeries, and small medical clinics moving into the private sector as a result of large privatizing measures taken by the government. This has led to an increase in medical health insurance. Nevertheless, many privatized clinics and hospitals have to comply with government health standards and provide free health care in certain circumstances.

Other government institutions which perform medical healthcare services, and which are not funded by the Ministry of Public Health include, but are not limited to:

  • MOI (Ministry of Internal Affairs)

  • Ministry of Defense

  • National Airline Uzbekistan Havo Yullari

  • The Ministry of Energy

The Ministry of Health’s priorities include:

  • Improvement of maternal and infant health care

  • Preventing a deterring the spread of diseases

  • Improving environmental conditions

The number of doctors, nurses and highly qualified medical experts has been on the increase in Uzbekistan. Careers within these professions, whether it is in the private or public sector, are competitive and offer favorable salaries.
