GITEC-IGIP successfully accomplished the Project "Emergency Medical Services Phase II"

To provide quality and modern emergency medical aid services, GITEC-IGIP supported the Ministry of Health in Bishkek in the restructuring of the Jalal Abad Oblast Hospital. The Jalal Abad Oblast Hospital is a 620-bed secondary hospital distributed over a large area and housed in a number of buildings. It serves the City of Jalal Abad and the Oblast with a population of approximately 1.0 million.

This project was funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through the Development Bank (KfW). As part of this project, an emergency department was built and fully equipped. The new emergency department in Jalal Abad will be an unique in its type in Kyrgyz Republic and lighthouse to be followed by the others in the country. The program has improved the preparedness for emergency treatment, increased the quality of care, reduced the waiting time for treatment and enabled focused and appropriate treatment of emergency patients to preserve life, prevent further injury or disability and to promote recovery.  Furthermore, the medical and paramedical staff of the whole referral system in the Oblast received the training to improve the quality of the emergency medical care and training in the international triage for the new emergency department.
