Türkiye and Kyrgyzstan Expand Health Collaboration

Collaboration between Türkiye and Kyrgyzstan in the healthcare sector continues to flourish, with Turkish doctors leading initiatives such as Kyrgyzstan's inaugural kidney transplant surgery last year and now gearing up for liver and bone marrow transplants.

The ongoing partnership between the health ministries of Türkiye and Kyrgyzstan has yielded significant advancements.

At the Kyrgyz-Turkish Friendship State Hospital in Bishkek, the first kidney transplant surgery in the country was successfully conducted. Currently, Turkish medical professionals are sharing their expertise with Kyrgyz counterparts to prepare for liver and bone marrow transplant procedures. This endeavor is facilitated by a cooperation agreement signed between İnönü University, a renowned Turkish state institution, Osh State University in Kyrgyzstan, and Kyrgyzstan State Medical Academy.

In support of this collaboration, the Kyrgyz Ministry of Health has established a Health Board, overseeing the training of over 60 Kyrgyz doctors in Türkiye.

Recently, Kyrgyz President Sadyr Japarov visited Türkiye to inspect the infrastructure for liver and bone marrow transplant surgeries. During the visit, he met with Prof. Dr. Ahmet Kızılay, the Rector of Malatya İnönü University, and his delegation to discuss further cooperation and exchange of expertise in the healthcare field.
