The Minister remarked, that along with the positive dynamics of indicators of population health, there are factors which expected life expectancy less than inhabitants of OECD countries.
"In Kazakhstan there is a high consumption of medical services on outpatient and inpatient levels. The costs of treatment in a hospital consist more than 50% of the amount of the allocated funds, while in OECD countries on average only a third. Today, the treatment per patient in hospital costs the same as the average cost of treatment 3 people in other types of medical care in the earlier stages of the disease.

In the structure of mortality more than half of new cases of circulatory system diseases (26%), acute myocardial infarction (5,5%), malignant neoplasm (13%), injuries (11%); obstetrics and childhood (3,6%). According to experts, the losses on these diseases reduce life expectancy by almost 8 years," Tamara Duisenova said.

In the result of implementation of the pilot project in 75% of patients stabilized level of blood pressure, formed the skills of control and regularity of intake of antihypertensive drugs. The number of hospitalizations patients with chronic heart failure is reduced in 2 times. Increased the number of patients screened for diabetes mellitus (in NKO - to 64%, in Pavlodar oblast - to 98%). It should be noted 100% coverage by learning self-management of all DMP participants.
