Donors to stop humanitarian import of contraceptives to Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan's international health partners stop humanitarian supplies on family planning programs and means of protection from unwanted pregnancies.

According to the press center of the Ministry of Health, for several years, Kyrgyzstan has been receiving contraceptives with the support of the United Nations Population Fund and thus helped to meet the need of women for family planning services.

«In recent years, the fund has warned that the supply of contraceptives in the same volume would stop. The Ministry of Health repeatedly met with the representatives of the Parliament of the Kyrgyz Republic and raised the issue that today the country should undertake to cover the needs for family planning services for the vulnerable category," the message says.

«There is still the problem of family planning through medical abortion — the most incorrect method. And we are talking about the need to work to prevent unwanted pregnancies," Aigul Bobekova, head of the Department of Primary Health Care and Hospital Aid of the Kyrgyz Ministry of Health, said.

The Ministry of Health has held many meetings, but until today the issue of allocation financial resources hasn’t been finally solved.

The risk group includes women with high risk of maternal deaths due to serious illnesses, people with disabilities and people living with HIV.
