“Now we can contact any specialist in Kazakhstan any time – and save more lives.”

Posted by Scott Berghoff

The quote above came from a Kazakhstan intensive care doctor in a report just released by The World Health Organization (WHO).

The Kazakhstan Ministry of Health has made the implementation of telemedicine part of their 2017 - 2021 strategic plan.

A key finding mentioned in the report is the growth of non-infectious diseases that are treated by specialties like cardiology, neurology, psychiatry, and pulmonology, and how these diseases can be treated successfully using a telemedicine platform.
