The Disease Management Programme (DMP) will roll out in 5 regions of Kazakhstan. On May 5, 2016 there will be a presentation of DMP in polyclinic #5. Within its framework there will be a workshop for the specialists which will be involved in the implementation of this project in the regions.

DMP is being implemented in Kazakhstan since 2013. A pilot has been tested in 7 polyclinics of North-Kazakhstan and Pavlodar regions. More than 1200 patients suffering from hypertension, diabetes and chronic heart failure have been involved in it.
Starting from September 28, certified experts of the Republican Center for Health Development (RCHD) are carrying out accreditation of medical organizations across the country. Over 240 medical organizations expressed their willingness to demonstrate high quality of medical services they provide in their own regions and prove that through undergoing the accreditation procedure.
Accreditation is currently a voluntary procedure. This year 202 public and 39 private health facilities applied for accreditation. A certificate of accreditation issued to policlinics and hospitals will enable them to be granted a government contractual order for provision of the state guaranteed benefit package (SGBP). Besides, the accreditation certificate serves as evidence that a medical organization is making all the efforts to improve its performance and is moving towards the international standards of health care provision.
The first ever accreditation of organizations eligible for conduction of independent assessment of health professionals in Kazakhstan
The Republican Center for Knowledge and Skills Assessment of the RCHD was the first to confirm its compliance with the accreditation standards. The accreditation certificate issued for 4 years enables the RCHD to carry out assessment of knowledge and skills and compliance with qualification requirements of health care professionals.
Previously the assessment of heath care professionals used to be conducted by the Committee for Control of Medical and Pharmaceutical Activity.
